33 Kent state secondary schools have been rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted inspectors.

Ofsted inspects services providing education and skills for learners of all ages, and regulates services for children and young people.

They carry out hundreds of regulatory visits throughout England each week to ensure that education, training and care services are to a high standard.

Its inspections provide an independent evaluation of a school’s performance, as well as making recommendations on what can be improved.

Ofsted’s grading system evaluates schools on each of the following categories

  • Effectiveness of leadership and management
  • Quality of teaching, learning and assessment
  • Personal development, behaviour and welfare
  • Outcomes for pupils

Schools are graded on a four-point scale – grade 1 (outstanding), grade 2 (good), grade 3 (requires improvement), grade 4 (adequate)

An outstanding school provides exceptionally well for the needs of its pupils and prepares them for the next stage of education or employment at the highest possible level.

See below for a list of the Kent state secondary schools which have been rated outstanding in their most recent reports published on the Ofsted website.
