Cricklewood secondary school is dubbed one of the most improved in the country by Ofsted
Education watchdog gives Hamsptead School the thumbs up after it saw its best ever GCSE results
A Cricklewood secondary school has been heralded as one of the most improved in the country by an education watchdog.
The accolade handed to Hampstead School in Westbere Road, by Ofsted inspectors comes after it saw its best ever GCSE results last year for the third time in a row.
The school’s latest report says: “This is a good school. There has been a relentless drive for improvement since the previous inspection.
“Achievement is good. Teaching is good.”
Jacques Szemalikowski, headteacher said: “We are one of the first schools in the country to be inspected under the new, much tougher 2012 Ofsted framework.
“I’m delighted that inspectors have recognised the remarkable progress and transformation of the last few years.”
