Following the most recent Ofsted visit, below is an extract taken from the Ofsted letter, dated 20 December 2017:
Special measures monitoring inspection of Kings College Guildford
Following my visit with Stuart Edwards, Ofsted Inspector, to your academy on 6 and 7 December 2017, I write on behalf of Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Education, Children’s Services and Skills to confirm the inspection findings. Thank you for the help you gave during the inspection and for the time you made available to discuss the actions that have been taken since the academy’s previous monitoring inspection.
The inspection was the second monitoring inspection since the academy became subject to special measures following the inspection that took place in December 2016. The full list of the areas for improvement that were identified during that inspection is set out in the annex to this letter. The monitoring inspection report is attached.
Having considered all the evidence I am of the opinion that at this time:
Leaders and managers are taking effective action towards the removal of special measures.
Having considered all the evidence I am of the opinion that the academy may appoint one newly qualified teacher.
I am copying this letter to the chair of the executive working group, the chief executive officer of the multi-academy trust, the regional schools commissioner and the director of children’s services for Surrey. This letter will be published on the Ofsted website.
Her Majesty’s Inspector
