Feversham Girls’ Academy achieves outstanding rating across all categories in latest Ofsted report

Feversham Girls' Academy has been praised by Ofsted for its glowing report – rating it as an outstanding school across all five categories.

Following an Ofsted inspection in March, Feversham Girls’ Academy – part of Feversham Education Trust – has been praised for its glowing report – rating it as an outstanding school across all five categories.

Within the report, inspectors highlighted how students have “high expectations of themselves and their peers”, “behaviour is exemplary”, and staff are “successful in helping pupils prepare for life in modern Britain” as well as inspiring them to set ambitious career goals.

Priding themselves on providing high-quality provision and opportunities for students and staff, Feversham Girls’ Academy and the Trust, were pleased to see that Ofsted also recognised the school’s rich curriculum, noting it “exceeds expectations” of the national curriculum, reflecting “leaders’ determination to transform lives and communities through academic excellence”.

The report notes that the school’s rich curriculum “exceeds expectations”.

This includes a well-planned personal development curriculum that equips students well for life in modern Britain.

The academy’s values of respect and tolerance underpin the programme, meaning students know how to keep themselves safe and healthy and share an appreciation for other faiths, beliefs and protected characteristics.

Sajida Muneer, Principal of Feversham Girls’ Academy, said:  “We have always been proud to provide a supportive, happy and respectful environment for our students, equipping them with the self-belief and confidence to achieve their ambitions.

“Achieving this quality of report, and the comments included, I am told is rare in secondary school education and so we’re delighted that the hard work, dedication and efforts of our whole school community have been formally recognised by Ofsted.”

Inspectors also reflected upon the enthusiasm from students in terms of their contribution to projects both within the school and their local community, for example running a local food bank. The Academy provides several opportunities for students to lead activities, noting “they demonstrate remarkable levels of initiative and generosity.”

Other areas of success highlighted by the report, include:

  • Staff inspire students to achieve ambitious career goals through a highly effective careers curriculum.
  • The quality of students’ work across a range of subjects is impressive.
  • Students care deeply about their community, with many participating in leadership projects and contributing to good causes.
  • Teachers and other adults support pupils with Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEND) extremely well. They thoughtfully adjust learning tasks to ensure all students achieve highly.
  • The school’s careers education programme contributes greatly to students’ success. Students are very aware of the courses and jobs they can secure after school. They aim high because staff and visitors inspire them to achieve.

Professor M. Khurshid Khan, CEO of Feversham Education Trust, said: “I am thrilled that Ofsted has commended Ms Muneer and her team at Feversham Girls’ Academy. They have created an academy which provides exemplary learning opportunities for the young people they serve.

“One parent described teachers’ enthusiasm as ‘infectious’ and I couldn’t agree more. Every member of the FET team goes the extra mile to support students and their families and it’s wonderful to see the mutual respect and admiration that exists between staff and students.

“We are delighted that our commitment to fostering a culture of excellence and providing rich experiences which best prepares students for their futures is recognised so emphatically by Ofsted throughout this report.”
