Catmose College receives ‘Outstanding’ in OFSTED Inspection


Catmose College, our exemplar education project, received an ‘Outstanding’ grade in its OFSTED inspection, at the beginning of February 2012. This comes almost one year after the project was completed and occupied by the students and staff.

For all areas of the inspection, the college received the highest grade, and was praised for being “an outstanding school led by an inspirational and visionary principal.” A statement EllisMiller would most definitely endorse.

The college was commended in particular for achievement levels “rising steadily” with “results at the end of Key Stage 4 that were well above average.”

With regard to provisions, OFSTED commented that the “specialist provision was highly effective in supporting students’ progress through a fully inclusive and integrated approach to its work.” Indeed, inclusivity, equality and empowerment in the learning experience were aims at the core of the campus’s design.

EllisMiller would like to congratulate the college on its exceptional OFSTED inspection. We indeed share the view of the inspectors that the college’s motto ‘equal value, outstanding progress’ is a reality being lived up to.

We are certain that Catmose, with the college’s strong leadership and fantastic staff and students, will continue to progress, in its attainment levels and beyond – to ultimately transform the lives of the young people in Rutland for generations to come.
