We were inspected by Ofsted in October 2006.

This resulted in a report that you can access  by clicking on the following link: 

Ofsted Inspection Report 2006

As you will see, the inspection found us to be “Outstanding”.  This is the highest category that can be used by Ofsted and we were recognised as achieving Grade 1 (ie Outstanding) in each of the main categories.  These are as follows:

Overall Effectiveness Achievement and Standards Personal Development and Well-Being Quality of Provision   Leadership and Management

The inspectors wrote a letter to each student in the school.  A section of this letter is quoted below:

“Your personal development and well-being is also outstanding and in making this judgement we were strongly impressed by the positive atmosphere in lessons and around the school, as well as the extent to which you take advantage of the large range of extra-curricular activities that are on offer to you.  All this, as you made very clear to us, are strengths of the school.”

Everybody connected to Davenant recognises this description of our school.  Everbody is committed to maintaining it and making it even better!
