At Passmores we pride ourselves on putting the needs of our community above whatever the latest government focus is; this means league table positions are less important to us than our young people leaving as well-rounded citizens. However, the school is inspected by the government's inspection service, Ofsted, on a regular basis in line with national guidelines.
Under the latest guidance, a good or outstanding school can be expect to receive an Ofsted inspection approximately each five years. This time can vary depending on the level of success the school is judged to be having based on a variety of external measures.
Ofsted carries out both full school inspections and specific inspections focussing on individual subjects or areas of the school's general provision.
Passmores Academy was inspected by Ofsted in May 2018 for a period of two days by a team of 6 people (one observing the process).
The full report for this inspection can be viewed in the pdf document on this page.

Any questions regarding the school's Ofsted inspections should be directed to the Principal in the first instance.
