In 2017, The Ruth Gorse Academy celebrated an outstanding OFSTED inspection during which teaching, learning and assessment were identified as the ‘core businesses’ of the academy. The inspection team recognised that through highly personalised approach to planning, teachers expertly meet the needs of pupils; as a result, all groups of pupils make rapid progress from their different starting points. This was also a contributing factor in the academy securing World Class Schools’ status in December 2018.
The academy provides a climate in which young people from all backgrounds are challenged, supported and encouraged to achieve beyond their expectations. This includes achievement within their academic subjects and within other areas of interest including: rowing, performing arts, cooking and karate.
