Inspection Reports

As a Catholic School we are inspected by two different bodies: the Office for Standards in Education, Children's Services and Skills (OFSTED) and we have a Diocesan Inspection which is carried out on behalf of the Clifton Diocese under section 48 of the Education Act 2005.  The Ofsted School Inspection Guide for Parents can be found by clicking here.  For further information regarding our Diocesan Inspection, please click here.

Christ the King was last inspected by Ofsted in November 2011 when we were judged to be Good with some Outstanding features.  The inspectors reported that "in all lessons seen during the inspection, pupils' behaviour was outstanding and pupils showed an eagerness to work hard and to learn.  Pupils talk of their enjoyment of all that they do in school".  To view a copy of this report, please click here.


"Outstanding care, guidance and support for all pupils are strengths of the school and are leading to better outcomes to the pupils' personal development" (Ofsted Nov 2011)   "Their behaviour is outstanding and results in an excellent working atmosphere in all lessons" (Ofsted Nov 2011)


Ofsted Data Dashboard

The Data Dashboard provides a snapshot of performance in a school.  The dashboard can be used by governors and members of the public to check the performace of the school or provider in which they are interested.  The Data Dashboard compliments the Ofsted Inspection report by providing an analysis of performance over a three year period.  Click here to view our Data Dashboard.
