ROBERT CLACK Comprehensive School received top marks of achievement in a recent government report.

Results of a recent Ofsted report give grade one to the specialist science college in all but one of the 27 categories.

The inspection concluded: "This is an outstanding school."

It found that overall effectiveness, achievements and standards, personal development and well-being of the students, quality of teaching and management were outstanding.

The inspector, Samantha Morgan-Price HMI, said in a letter to pupils: "Robert Clack is a caring school, and as you and your parents told us, the school wants you to achieve all you can."

She described the atmosphere in the school as calm and considerate, and the relationships between students and teachers as very good.

The teaching was said to be of high quality, and special educational needs for the larger than average number of students with learning difficulties and disabilities were also met.

Head teacher Paul Grant said: "I'm very pleased for everybody. This is the third outstanding report for the school.

"The strategies the governors introduced in 1997 were to encourage mutual respect and it has become part of the school culture

"We look for people who want to be here for the right reasons and the consequence is a school full of staff who want our children to succeed."

Mr Grant said one of the reasons why people loved the school was because it accepted children from all backgrounds.
