THE Avonbourne Trust teaches young people from four to 18 at its schools in Bournemouth.

And today staff and students are celebrating after all its academies were judged Good by Ofsted inspectors.

Avonbourne College, Avonbourne Sixth Form and Avonwood Primary were all graded Good following an inspection last month.

And its other academy, Harewood College, received the same grade when it was inspected in 2015.

CEO of Avonbourne Trust, Debbie Godfrey-Phaure, said: "We are all absolutely thrilled that every academy in the Trust is a Good school.

"We are proud that the inspectors recognised how ambitious we are for all our children, right from reception through to sixth form.

"Most of all we are delighted that the hard work, excellent progress and success of our students has received official praise."

Following the two-day inspection, the inspectors concluded that the CEO has been continuously ambitious for the academies, resulting in good education for pupils across all phases.

They said teaching is good and supports pupils’ progress and that behaviour of pupils is also good.

Inspectors also highlighted that the care and attention paid to the emotional well-being of the children is a considerable strength.

Ofsted also praised the wealth of activities provided for the children, which pupils thrive on and achieve strong outcomes as a result.

They singled out for praise the Avonbourne College team Project Emerge, whose social enterprise to give loans to entrepreneurs in Third World countries has won national awards.

Lead inspector Kathy Maddocks, said: "The chief executive officer is an excellent role model for leaders and staff at the school.

"Pupils benefit from this because the staff are committed to providing them with a worthwhile education that prepares them well for the future.

"Leaders have ensured that the high expectations are reflected in social and extra-curricular activities. The development in this area is exceptional in some cases."

She said the Trust can improve further by monitoring the teaching of pupils with lower ability more rigorously so that their progress improves.

And the report also recommended attendance should be monitored and improved.
