Our recent Ofsted inspection confirms that The Axholme Academy is ‘Good’ in all areas.

Ofsted Inspection Report - 8th - 9th March 2023


Dear Parents/Carers

The Axholme Academy Ofsted report

We believe the report to be a fair reflection of our Academy. The inspection process was
detailed and rigorous and the report is positive and praiseworthy about all aspects of
Academy life.

The summary of the inspection judgement is as follows:

  • Overall effectiveness Good
  • The quality of education Good
  • Behaviour and attitudes Good
  • Personal development Good
  • Leadership and management Good

These findings are no surprise to us and agree with our own Academy self-evaluations. We
never ‘do things just for Ofsted’; we do things because they fit with our values and vision to
go ‘Beyond Expectations’ and we believe they are right for our community, to help our
students thrive academically, socially and emotionally. Nevertheless, it is always pleasing to
have our practice and Quality of Education endorsed by external organisations.

The areas identified by the inspection team that we need to improve further were already an
area of focus for the Academy and will continue to form a central part of our forward looking
improvement strategies.

I must say a massive well done and thank you to our whole staff team, Governors, students
and parents. It is only through our combined commitment, dedication and hard-work, each
and every day to be Ready and Able to Learn so that we will be enabled to go ‘Beyond

Our staff team is always striving to improve because we always believe we can be even
better - and we will continue to do so.

Yours sincerely
D Keogh
