Lichfield Cathedral School
STAFF and pupils at Lichfield Cathedral School are delighted to have achieved the highest inspection rating from the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) following the recent inspection in January.
For both pupils’ academic achievement and personal development, the ISI inspectors gave the school their highest rating of ‘excellent’. Pupils display “excellent attitudes to learning, demonstrating an intrinsic motivation and determination to do well”.
The report commends the school for how well it cares for pupils and the wide range of co-curricular activities from which students benefit.
Headteacher Sue Hannam said: “This judgement recognises the enthusiasm, dedication and commitment of students, staff, parents, governors and everyone associated with the Cathedral School. I am thrilled that the love we all have for the school shone through the inspection process and so proud to serve as Headteacher to such wonderful children and an extraordinary group of staff.”
Chair of Governors, Nina Dawes OBE, added: “It’s very satisfying to hear such praise for the high quality of our teaching and the real sense of community throughout the school. We are a school built on strong Christian values and it is rewarding to know that those values radiate through the attitudes, behaviours, actions and aspirations of our students. Looking to the future, we will take every opportunity to raise standards further and continue to offer our pupils the very best educational experience.”
