Our most recent Ofsted inspection was carried out in 2011, and graded us as 'Outstanding'. This is a culmination of the hard work, dedication and determination of our whole school community. Our students were fantastic throughout the inspection; showing great courtesy towards the inspection team and speaking with such passion and confidence about their school. Read the full report.

It is also important to remember and fully acknowledge the part played by others who have contributed to the success of the school and so we would like to thank both Andrew Nixon and Aydin Onac for their significant contribution as former Heads of Fortismere.

Comments from the report include:

  •  ‘The school is outstandingly effective’.
  • Comments from parents and carers referred to the ‘wonderful’ and ‘dedicated and professional teachers’
  •  ‘Looked-after children and children with special educational needs and/or disabilities also make outstanding progress.’

In December 2017, Ofsted carried another safeguarding inspection at our school. The report found that we meet all safeguarding requirements.
