A boys’ school has been rated “good” by education watchdogs.

The Royal Liberty School was praised for its leadership and governance, which Ofsted said was “good and improving”.

They added that leaders and governors have worked together to “successfully raise standards” at the Romford school, and students are now making “rapid and sustained progress” and most are achieving well.

Inspectors said the improvement in achievement was a direct result of the “school’s drive to improve teaching and learning” and because teachers have high expectations and ambitions for the students’ achievement.

The curriculum was rated “good” and offers a range of varied courses that meets the needs of students of all abilities.

Relationships between teachers and students were also deemed “good” with particular emphasis given to the “wide-ranging opportunities” for students through clubs, trips and competitions and students’ enthusiasm about opportunities to represent the school in sport.

To make improvements, Ofsted has asked teachers to plan lessons to challenge students more, and to ensure students respond to comments teachers make for improvement following marking.
