Inspection Reports

Our school reports speak for themselves.

SIAMS says:

"The distinctiveness and effectiveness of Accrington St Christopher's Church of England High School as a Church of England school are outstanding

"The clear Christian vision of the senior management team (SMT), ably led by the headteacher and well supported by governors and the director of spirituality, ensures that the academy is a caring and inclusive community in which learners flourish as ‘children of God’."

"Attainment is high and progress is very good. This clearly demonstrates the positive impact of the academy’s ethos on learners’ excellent behaviour and on strong, mutually respectful relationships."

OFSTED says:

"This is a good school"

"The headteacher, other senior leaders and governors are determined in their ambition to ensure that pupils blossom into thoughtful, caring and responsible citizens."

"The personal development of pupils at the school is of an extremely high standard. Pupils are happy, polite and very respectful of others. Attendance is much higher than the national average and no group is disadvantaged by poor attendance."

"Students make excellent progress in the sixth form. Leaders have created and developed this relatively new provision with drive and commitment. It serves its students exceptionally well."
