A Bristol secondary school is celebrating after receiving the result of a recent Ofsted inspection.

Oasis Academy John Williams on Petherton Road in Hengrove has been rated ‘Good’ by the school inspecting body.   

The two-day inspection took place in September, with inspectors stating that ‘pupils are happy at school and feel welcomed and valued as part of the school community’.

They also recognised the strength in relationships that are built with pupils and their families.  

Throughout the report, inspectors highlighted the improved performance since they last visited the 13-year-old school in 2017 when it was also rated 'Good'.     

They also shared a ‘glowing’ account of how well students are supported in their learning, how the students are presented with leadership opportunities within the academy, and how students develop confidence in their studies. 

The report also mentions that parents and carers value the communication they receive from the academy. 

Safeguarding at the school was found to be effective, with the report stating that students are happy at the academy, and that the curriculum teaches them how to stay safe. 

Victoria Boomer-Clark, principal at Oasis Academy John Williams, commented: “We are absolutely delighted and very proud that Ofsted, once again, has recognised Oasis Academy John Williams to be a Good school. 

“This is testament to the hard work of our incredible young people and staff team and to the support of our parents and carers.”
