thumbs_up.jpgBelow are the results of the parental satisfaction questionnaires we gave out earlier in the year at the Academic Interview day. The questions are drawn largely from the parents questionnaire that is used by Ofsted, the school inspection department of the government, when they inspect schools. We also add own questions to this list to construct our questionnaire.

The results show a very positive picture. The final question of the questionnaire, perhaps the key question, is shown in the pie chart below. There were 420 parental responses and the results for all the questions are shown in the table underneath the pie chart. Thanks to all of those parents that completed and returned the questionnaire. The information drawn from the responses and comments will help us improve the school further.
