The Ofsted report highlights the academic rigour and high achievement of the pupils who enjoy the school's structured curriculum. It was clear to inspectors that:

  • ‘sound awareness begins in Nursery and flows through to phonics in Reception.
  • ‘Children do well at this school and achieve high standards in reading, writing and
  • ‘Pupils like learning new things such as Latin.’
  • ‘Pupils work with positive attitudes. They settle to work quickly, try their best and are proud of their achievements.

The report goes on to praise the breadth of activities on offer mentioning after school clubs, sporting events, musical performances and residential visits which strengthen children's learning, add to their positive experience and nurture them as all-rounders.

There is a strong culture of safeguarding in this school. Staff know pupils well. The trust has strong processes to enable trustees to maintain close oversight of safeguarding.
Parents hold the school in high esteem and are full of praise for the education and care that their children receive.
I am delighted that the positive attitudes of our pupils and the ongoing support of families for the school has been recognised. I’m proud of the dedication that staff give to pupils each and every day. Leading Whiteknights is an honour and a privilege.
Headteacher, Mr Francois Walker
