Ofsted Reports and Information 

​In our last school report Ofsted rated us as a 'Good' school with 'Good' for our residential care (Kiplings).


Key Findings 

Teaching continues to be good. It is improving well due to the work of the senior leaders. The teamwork of staff in class is excellent. All staff are proud to work at Horton Lodge. Pupils enjoy school very much. Their behaviour and attitudes to work are outstanding and they are kind and gentle to one another. There are extremely good partnerships with parents and carers. They are full of praise for the school and the support they receive. Outreach work for pupils with physical difficulties in other schools is greatly valued.The new executive headteacher is very effective and highly regarded. He is leading the school forward with the full support of all staff. The new system for checking on pupils’ achievement is very good, although it has not yet had time to pick out more subtle trends. The school meets the national minimum standards for residential special schools. Provision in Kiplings is good in all aspects.
