Ofsted says St Albans’ Marlborough School ‘making progress’
A ST ALBANS school has been praised for creating a “harmonious community” in its most recent Ofsted report.
Marlborough School was recognised as a satisfactory school in the overall grading last month but described as making “good” provision for its students.
Inspectors noted that significant progress had been made in addressing weaknesses in English and mathematics and that standards in English had risen above the national level.
The sixth form and the school’s leadership were praised in the report, but it went on to say that despite those commendable strengths, the school’s overall effectiveness was satisfactory – as it had been in 2009 – due to the “broadly average” attainment at the end of Key Stage 4 and the school’s overall achievement being satisfactory.
Headteacher Annie Thomson said there was a great deal to celebrate in the report.
