NOTICES

Ofsted Report

Dear Parent / Carer,
I am delighted to announce that following a full Ofsted inspection in July 2016 the school has been graded as Good. This is a key moment in the school’s journey to outstanding, as the school has always been graded ‘Satisfactory’ or ‘Requires improvement’ since the introduction of Ofsted in 1992.
The report (a copy is available on the school website) highlights the improvements in teaching and student welfare, and the success achieved by the students. I was especially pleased to see the inspection team recognised our courteous, unfailingly polite and respectful students, who are eager to learn, and have positive attitudes in lessons. This is the reason The Cottesloe School is a wonderful place to teach and learn.
Please take the opportunity to read the report to see the improvements made and the areas the school will be working on to attain the ‘Outstanding’ grade the staff and governors aspire to, ensuring all students have a positive and successful education at the school.
Mr McBurnie

Headteacher’s Welcome

It is a real pleasure, as the Headteacher of the Cottesloe School, to welcome you to our website and to our school.

The Cottesloe School is a vibrant and challenging learning community. Our students benefit from highly qualified and exceptionally committed staff, who recognise the importance of creative and challenging teaching and high professional standards.

Our curriculum has carefully designed pathways to make sure it meets the needs of all our students. It provides an excellent range of options in GCSE and A Level qualifications supported by a range of vocational courses. Students enjoy school and appreciate its strong community feel. All students experience a high level of care and guidance to support their personal and academic development.

We value support and feedback from parents as this has been proven to improve achievement and the students’ academic experience. In addition, we welcome visits to the school, by appointment, as we believe the means of deciding if a school is the right one for your child is to see it in action.

As a school, we provide a high quality learning experience, outstanding pastoral care, ever improving examination results, high standards of behaviour and care for others. the Cottesloe School has a calm, purposeful learning environment in which all students are happy, successful and safe.
