Stuart Bathurst - Ofsted 2024

Dear Parents, carers and students,

It gives me great pleasure to share with you our most recent OFSTED Inspection report which took place over two days on 23rd and 24th April 2024.

For the students, staff, leaders and wider community of Stuart Bathurst Catholic High School, this is validation for all the hard work that has taken place over a number of years.

We intend to share this fantastic news far and wide over the coming days and weeks, and look forward to the positive impact it has on our school community.

On behalf of everyone who works and supports the school, I would like to thank you all for your faith, confidence, trust and loyalty to the school, as we sought to transform educational outcomes for our students.

Our efforts and your support have paid dividends and I’m delighted to tell you that Stuart Bathurst Catholic High School hasn't just improved by one OFSTED grading but two, making an unprecedented jump from grade 4 (Inadequate) to grade 2 (Good) in all areas. This is an exceptional achievement for our school community.

The pace of change and improvement accelerated significantly when the school joined the St John Bosco Multi-Academy in April 2020. I want to celebrate and recognise the contribution and support provided by the multi-academy.

Finally, I would like to congratulate all students and every single member of staff and our governors on this success! This is your achievement, and I want you to be proud of your GOOD Catholic school.

Yours sincerely

Mr R May

Executive Principal
