ALTRINCHAM Grammar School for Boys has been judged to be ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted inspectors.
It received the highest-possible rating in all five of the school watchdog’s categories following its first inspection since 2007.
At that time, it was also judged to be outstanding, making it exempt from routine inspection for the next 14 years until that exemption was removed.
The latest inspection team gave outstanding ratings for: the quality of education; behaviour and attitudes; personal development; leadership and management, and Sixth Form provision.
Headmaster Graeme Wright said: “It is obviously very satisfying to have the work and achievements of our students and staff recognised in such glowing terms by the inspectors. It is a clear endorsement of the school and the quality of the all-round education provided at AGSB.
“I would like to thank our students for their commitment and engagement to our school not only during the inspection, but also over the challenging few years of disruption that they have faced.
“I would also like to use this opportunity to pay tribute to the steadfast support we receive from parents, governors and trustees, which enables us to sustain the levels of excellence to which we aspire each and every day.”
He added: “We are very pleased to see the report reflect the hard work and commitment of everyone in our school community. Our students are described as humble, respectful and kind young people, who love coming to school and who thrive here and achieve exceptionally well.
“The report commends the knowledge and skill of our teaching staff and the support they provide to students, and the hard work and dedication of our whole staff team both in and outside the classroom is rightly acknowledged.”
