We had our long-awaited Ofsted inspection today. This is compulsory for all new schools and results in a report to the Department for Education on whether Ofsted believe we are likely to meet the Independent School Standards. We now await the DfE's decision, which is expected to be with us in around two weeks. We remain hopeful of being approved to open in September but it is now a case of "wait and see". We will update the website again when we have any news.
