Dear Families,

Our Ofsted Inspection took place on 21st and 22nd March 2023. The inspection report was published today by Ofsted. 

We are incredibly proud to confirm that Swiss Cottage School is confirmed as meeting the criteria for 'Outstanding'! 

The inspection process evaluated our curriculum, provision, and standards for education with:

- observations of over 25 classes for every curriculum pathway in Lower School, Upper School, and our Sixth Form
- observations during lunch and play
- meetings with pupils, teachers, support staff, and NHS therapists
- meetings with governors, Local Authority school improvement team, and the Local Authority Safeguarding Team 

We look forward to celebrating this incredible achievement with our community. Our first focus will be the planning of activities for pupils to celebrate their inspection outcome!

Thank you for the ongoing partnership - working together to help us always grow and flourish. 

Wishing all families an enjoyable weekend.

Yours Sincerely,
The Senior Leadership Team
