Austen House School praised by Ofsted for its Excellent Behaviours and Attitudes

Austen House School, which is a part of Educ8, has been praised by Ofsted, as it is awarded Outstanding in Behaviours and Attitudes and a Good status overall.


The report highlights how the school provides ‘high quality encouragement and support’ that is underpinned by a strong culture of ‘high ambition’ and ‘personal development’.

The Office for Standards in Education (Ofsted) is responsible for inspecting a range of educational institutions, including state schools and some independent schools, in England.


Throughout the report, inspectors praised a wide range of areas where the Austen House School is working exceptionally hard to provide the best educational opportunities for its students. Notably:

  • Pupils know that staff care about them.

  • Pupils develop trusting and supportive relationships with staff and peers. They feel safe and valued at Austen House.

  • Pupils self-esteem and engagement with learning improve considerably due to leaders’ high expectations for pupils’ behaviour and education.

  • Teachers use a range of suitable resources and activities that help pupils to remember the curriculum.

  • Pupils learn in calm, well-organised classrooms that support their learning. For example, pupils refer to helpful displays that remind them of important aspects of the curriculum.

  • Pupils trust adults to resolve any disagreements that they may have with their friends. This includes any rare incidents of bullying. As a result of leaders’ supportive and highly effective approach, pupils develop a renewed sense of pride in their work.

  • Pupils learn in calm, well-organised classrooms that support their learning. For example, pupils refer to helpful displays that remind them of important aspects of the curriculum.

  • Pupils learn about a range of faiths, cultures and people.

  • Leaders ensure that pupils learn how to stay safe. Staff deliver this learning in a way that considers pupils’ individual needs carefully. For example, pupils learn how to communicate online and use mobile telephones safely. Close supervision from staff ensures that pupils do this in a well-managed way. Pupils also learn about the risks of drugs, criminal exploitation and knife crime. They know how to report any worries that they have.

Virginia Perkins, the Proprietor at Austen House School and Chief Executive Officer at Educ8, said:


“I want to say a huge congratulations to the whole community at Austen House School on this hugely positive and well-deserved report.
