Bucks UTC Ofsted Full Inspection – March 2022
We have now received the final report from Ofsted following our inspection on 22nd and 23rd March 2022. The full report will be published on the Ofsted website from Monday 23rd May 2022. However, we are allowed to inform parents and carers of the outcome in advance. You can find the report on this page or in the ‘Governance’ section of our website here.
The grades that can be awarded are Outstanding (1), Good (2), Requires Improvement (3) or Inadequate (4). Previously the school was judged as ‘Requires Improvement’ (3). In this recent inspection, the school was judged overall to be within the category of ‘Requires Improvement’ (3) again.
We feel that the inspection was carried out fairly and the overall outcome is an accurate reflection of the current position of Bucks UTC. The result is in keeping with our own self assessment of school performance. Inspectors acknowledged that we have identified the key areas for development that the new leadership of Bucks UTC is taking purposeful steps to drive improvements. It was recognised that since November 2021, when Bucks UTC joined Merchant Taylors’ Oxfordshire Academy Trust, significant progress has been made and there is confidence that this positive direction will continue in the coming months and years.
The report highlights several areas of strength and recent improvement, of which we are particularly proud:
