Regional Schools Comissioner Visit

Although students enjoyed a day off on Friday 25 November 2016 our Leadership team were busy hosting a talk by South West Regional Schools Commissioner, Rebecca Clark.

Rebecca Clark was invited to our 'Good' school on Friday morning to talk to the North Wilts Secondary Schools Leadership  Teams about her vision for the strategy for improving standards across the South West.

SENIOR staff in good schools have a moral duty to help other schools that are struggling, leadership teams from across North Wiltshire have been told.

The visit came just under a fortnight after a stinging letter by Ofsted regional director Bradley Simmons that said Swindon children were being failed by their schools at every stage.

Although Bradon Forest comes under Wiltshire and was rated “good” in its last Ofsted inspection earlier this year, over 70 per cent of its intake of pupils come from Swindon.

The Swindon Advertiser covered the story here;
