Ofsted Success for Hanslope School


Staff and pupils at Hanslope School are celebrating after being judged ‘Outstanding’ by government inspectors, Ofsted.

Hanslope School is a popular school which serves the villages of Hanslope and Castlethorpe.

They have 233 children between the ages of 4 and 12.

Cllr Norman Miles, Lead Member for Children and School Improvement, said: “Hanslope School being rated as ‘Outstanding’ is a brilliant achievement.

“The staff and governors work exceptionally hard and this latest rating by Ofsted is very well deserved.”

The report, which was officially published on 29 January, states: “Pupils are happy, self-assured and confident learners. From the start, adults build strong relationships with children and encourage them to succeed. Pupils’ attitudes to learning are exemplary.

“Around the school they demonstrate a high standard of behaviour. They rightly take pride in all they do.” Headteacher, Mr Ryan Fensham-Brown was delighted with the result: “Our vision at Hanslope School is to prepare each and every child for a lifetime of learning, within an evolving, diverse world, and I am really pleased that Ofsted have recognised the outstanding quality of education we are providing our pupils with. This fantastic result is a testament to the hard work of everyone involved with our school; from staff, governors and the local authority to our pupils and their parents and carers.”
