OFSTED RATES HIGH BEECHES OUTSTANDING - July 2023
We are delighted to be able to announce that High Beeches has been judged outstanding in its recent OFSTED inspection. We were the first primary school in Harpenden to be awarded the outstanding grade since the current more rigorous OFSTED inspection framework came into force in May 2019.
The report notes the strong family atmosphere at the school and states that pupils learn and behave exceptionally well, and are highly engaged in lessons, and that the youngest children get off to an exceptionally good start. This is attributed to high quality planning and expert teaching by skilful teachers and teaching assistants.
The full inspection report can be found here, and you can read about the school in the Herts Advertiser here and in the St Albans Times here.
On behalf of the whole school community, I am delighted to introduce you to High Beeches Primary School.
