The George Eliot School judged Ofsted Good 2014

Good Student Achievement

Achievement is good. Students make good progress in all subjects. The standards reached by students leaving the academy in Year 11 improved on all indicators in 2013. They are set to improve again in 2014.

Ofsted June 2014. 

Good Teaching

The quality of teaching is good. Teachers exhibit very good subject knowledge and have high expectations of their students. As a result of the excellent relationships and well established routines in the classroom, teachers are able to take risks with their teaching and be more creative with the activities they provide.

Ofsted June 2014

Good Student Behaviour

Behaviour is good. They are keen to learn, respond well to teachers and are increasingly aspirational about their own futures.
