The John Roan School has been judged ‘Good’ across all categories, following its very first inspection as an academy. 

The Inspectors’ report is full of praise for the school. In particular, it highlights leaders’ success in creating a “culture of high expectations” in which students achieve well in many different subjects.  

The report also credits United Learning – the national group which the school joined as an academy in 2019 – for being “instrumental” in supporting its “improvement journey”.  

Ofsted’s report emphasises the “strong sense of community” at The John Roan School – from the positive behaviour of students to the way diversity is celebrated. The Inspectors say that staff ensure students are “kept safe” and encouraged “to work hard and to be ambitious for themselves”.  

This sense of ambition is also said to be reflected in leaders’ approach to the curriculum, which has been “carefully designed” through to Sixth Form. Likewise, staff are commended for their strong subject knowledge and ability to “explain concepts and ideas well” to students, as well as for providing “effective support” to those with additional needs. The Inspectors point to the high level of training staff receive to support their work, including from United Learning’s network of subject specialist advisors.  

Other areas of strength praised by Ofsted include the opportunities for character development beyond the academic curriculum, with students said to “benefit from a variety of enrichment experiences, including visits and guest speakers”.   

At Sixth Form, the Inspectors highlight the breadth of subjects on offer, as well as the “excellent facilities at the Maze Hill Site”. They note that many Sixth Form students are successful in gaining places at high performing universities – this summer this included students who secured Oxbridge offers and places for Medical School.
