Holbrook Academy is out of Special Measures

Following another visit this week, the school inspectors, Ofsted, have decided Holbrook Academy no longer needs to be in Special Measures. The inspector found a number of good features and some that still require improvement. The full details will be available from Ofsted within a couple of weeks.

Principal Dr Simon Letman said: “This is very good news. We have more to do but it is very encouraging that the inspector has recognised the progress made to date.”

Chair of Governors, Tim Fenton, welcomed the judgement. “The governors appreciate the hard work being put in by staff and students,” he said. “We are grateful, too, for the support and encouragement being shown by parents.”
