An Upminster secondary school continues to be described as 'good' by Ofsted after an inspection.

The education regulator carried out a two-day visit to The Coopers' Company and Coborn School in September.

Inspectors praised the school in a report, published on Monday (November 28).

They called the curriculum "ambitious" and said it gave pupils "a breadth of opportunities".

Ofsted wrote: "Pupils are happy and safe here, in what they typically describe as the ‘The Coopers’ bubble’. It is an inviting, friendly environment."

Inspectors found that subject leaders consider what skills and knowledge pupils need for their future learning and employment.

The school's senior team, under the leadership of headteacher Sue Hay, also "works effectively", the report said.

Regards improvements, inspectors wrote: "In some subjects, teachers do not check pupils’ understanding and use the information to identify misconceptions or gaps in pupils’ knowledge and to inform further teaching.

"Leaders and teachers should make sure that, in all subjects, teaching ensures that pupils are supported to learn, remember and use knowledge securely."

Ofsted inspects 'good' schools once every four years in an ungraded inspection to check the school remains 'good'.

This was Coopers' second such visit since it was graded 'good' in 2013.

The school was contacted for comment.
