Welcome to New Forest Academy...

Ofsted inspectors who visited for two days in January have formally recognised that leadership is now good at New Forest Academy.

The report published to parents on Friday 5th February states: ‘The determined and very good leadership provided by the Principal has transformed the culture here. Many pupils are now proud of the academy and show great loyalty to it.’

Leaders have been commended for ‘driving improvements in all aspects of the academy’s work strongly.’

The Principal, Karen Godsall said ‘I am delighted that inspectors confirmed that we are transforming the quality of education at New Forest Academy.  They really could see how standards are rising securely in nearly all subjects as a result of better teaching and a better culture of learning. I am very proud of the staff and students who have worked so hard to achieve this success.’

The Ofsted report also says ‘Pupils feel very safe in the academy’ and that ‘bullying is very rare.’  Pupils ‘enjoy being part of an academy that has been improving rapidly over the last year and they show value for the commitment and dedication to their welfare and learning demonstrated by staff.’

‘A strong culture of care and support for pupils helps to ensure their safety and well-being.’
