    Published 19/05/22

    We are delighted to publish our latest Ofsted report, following our inspection on 5th & 6th April 2022.  It confirms that Limehurst Academy continues to be a good school, but far more than that, the report really captures what a special place Limehurst is.  The report is available to read using the link at the bottom of this page. 






    The opening paragraph is wonderful, and other highlights identified by inspectors include:

    • Pupils are polite and respectful. In lessons, their conduct is exemplary.
    • Teachers demand the very best.
    • The curriculum is ambitious for all pupils.
    • Leaders have… precisely identified where pupils have additional learning needs as a result of the pandemic.  They are helping to rebuild pupils’ knowledge and skills.
    • Pupils benefit from a rich personal development curriculum.  They are prepared well for the next stage of their education.
    • There is a culture of vigilance and care in the school.
    • Leaders are determined to safeguard pupils’ welfare.

    There are always improvements that can be made in any school, and we fully agree with the inspectors’ assessment of what we still need to do; in fact, we had identified these areas with them before the inspection.

  • MVP News

    Published 07/04/22

    Back in January we launched the Mentors in Violence Prevention Programme (MVP). You may remember that MVP is an active bystander approach where students are given the knowledge, confidence, and skills to be able to identify and speak out against bullying, abusive behaviour and violence. Students took part in two introductory lessons looking at what it means to be an active bystander, the different types of abuse, including verbal, physical, emotional and sexual, and harmful gender stereotypes.
