We had our last 'full' Ofsted inspection in December 2013 when the school was judged as ‘Good.’  Schools judged ‘Good’ at their last full inspection will normally receive a one-day short inspection, approximately every four years, as long as the quality of education remains good. The purpose of the Ofsted short inspection is to evaluate:

  •         Whether the school remains good
  •         Whether safeguarding is effective or not
  •         The capacity of all leaders, managers and governors to drive sustainable improvement
  •         How well the school has dealt with any areas for improvement identified at the previous   full inspection

From a one day inspection it is not possible for the Ofsted rating of the school to be changed – we require another ‘full inspection’ for this to happen.

Our most recent inspection took place on 2nd October 2018 and was a one day ‘short inspection.’ We are very pleased with the feedback letter we received and feel we are well placed to continue providing the children of The John Hampden School Wendover with an excellent start to school life.
