HCAT is very pleased with the Ofsted inspection report published on the 1st July 2019.

The school was Good in all areas, the first time in 20 years it has achieved this grade.

This is a result of a Team effort between the Head Marc Cooper all the Staff and the children. The school has worked closely with an Outstanding Secondary St Marys College as well as the HCAT team to make the school an excellent learning environment for all.

Ofsted Said

  • The headteacher leads the school with passion and determination. Leaders, including governors, know the community well and are highly ambitious for the pupils in the school. Their strong leadership has led to good teaching, good behaviour and pupils making good progress.
  • Staff share the leaders’ vision and are proud of the improvements they are making in their school.
  • Governors have the knowledge, skills and confidence to provide robust challenge to senior leaders. They are extremely clear about the strengths of the school and what more needs to be done.


Well done to all – the journey forward continues
