Ofsted and Exam Results

 

“This is a good school.” – Ofsted 2015

Ofsted published its most recent report about Manchester Health Academy on May 2015.  We are delighted that Ofsted found that this is a Good School.

The report recognised how strong leadership has generated positive change in the Academy:

“Academy leaders, including governors, are accurate in their evaluation of the Academy’s strengths and areas for development.  They have successfully generated a culture of high expectations, aspiration, inclusion and care that applies to all who attend the Academy.”

Inspectors were pleased with the progress students make here:

“Students achieve well across a broad range of subjects.  Disadvantaged students make progress that is in-line with their peers and is better than similar students nationally.”

The inspection also highlighted the work of the Academy with regards to students’ personal development:

“Students’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development lies at the heart of the work of the Academy. As a result, students demonstrate high levels of social and cultural engagement and understanding; they are interested in the wider world, are respectful of people’s differences and enjoy making a positive contribution to the life of the Academy.”

Ofsted saw that the improvements in teaching that our staff have made are a real benefit to our students:

“The quality of teaching overall is good and some is outstanding.”

Our sixth form was seen as good provision, with the subject knowledge of staff and how well students are prepared for their next step mentioned in the report:

“The Sixth Form is good, students are well prepared for the next steps in their education, training or employment.”

Inspectors highlighted how well we work with children who face additional challenges:

“Disabled students and those with special educational needs achieve well because of the outstanding support they receive.”

Whilst visiting the Academy, inspectors were impressed with how well our students behave and their attitude to those around them:

“Students’ behaviour in lessons and around the Academy is good.  They are respectful to adults and to each other.  They have a positive attitude to learning and value the wide range of extra-curricular activities that contribute to their outstanding spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.”

Ofsted were particularly impressed by our work to keep pupils safe and secure:

“The safeguarding of students’ health and wellbeing is outstanding.”

Examination Results

Aspiration is one of our core principles and this includes having high expectations of our students academically. Good examination results will prepare students for opportunity enabling them to move on to further and higher education including university and a successful career. High expectations, self-belief, hard work, independent learning and determination are key factors leading to high achievement.

We are very proud of our journey since opening in 2009 and our examination results have improved year on year. This is due to having appropriate access to a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum providing equal opportunities for all students.

The success is also testimony to the hard work, determination and commitment of the staff who are committed to supporting the students to achieve their very best. They are well qualified – continually developing professionally to ensure your child receives the best education possible.

Working alongside our partner primary schools has also meant students have improved their levels on joining us and will lead to further increases in attainment and progress year on year.
