These local schools have impressed OFSTED and been ranked as ‘good’ and ‘outstanding’.
With September fast approaching, children across the country are getting ready to begin their new adventures at secondary school.
Liverpool boasts a number of brilliant schools, and we have compiled a list of those that have received the highest OFSTED ranking, of ‘good’ and ‘outstanding’, up to August 2022.
OFSTED is the regulatory body responsible for visiting schools across the country and grading them on a four-point scale.
At the bottom of the scale is ‘inadequate’, followed by ‘requires improvement’, ‘good’ and ‘outstanding’.
Grades are based on overall effectiveness, quality of education, behaviours and attitudes, personal development, and leadership and management.
