UXBRIDGE High School has been awarded an outstanding report by Ofsted inspectors.
The school in The Greenway, Uxbridge, was inspected for two days on February 16 and 17 and the school last week learned it has been awarded the highest accolade possible.
Peter Lang, headteacher, said: "This is a superb accolade for Uxbridge High School. We are all very proud of this report which reflects the hard work of all students, staff and governors and the support of parents and families. I know that students and parents are also rightly proud of their school."
Nafisa Asif, a year 11 student: “I think being an outstanding school shows how the school has improved and how far it has come. It will encourage even more students to come to Uxbridge High."
Inspectors praised on the range of courses available to students, commenting on the blend of academic and vocational subjects offered.
The proportion of students achieving five A*-C grades at GCSE including English and Maths has risen year on year since the last inspection, and is significantly above average, having previously been low.
Val Lines, parent governor, said: "It is really good news about the inspection and I would like to congratulate the headteacher and all the staff for the continual hard work and dedication given to the school and the students. It is really appreciated both as a governor and a parent."
