Reach Academy judged ‘outstanding’ in first Ofsted Inspection

We are delighted to share our first ever Ofsted report with the school community. Reach Academy is the first all-through Free School to be judged ‘outstanding’. The Academy was inspected in March 2014 and was judged outstanding in every category.

Read the full report here.

The report states that:

  • “Pupils receive an outstanding education at Reach Academy Feltham.”

Achievement and Progress

  • “Throughout the academy, pupils make excellent progress in reading, writing and mathematics.”

 Teaching and Learning

  • “Pupils’ outstanding achievement is secured as a result of the exceptional teaching pupils receive. Teachers have excellent subject knowledge and use this to plan and deliver learning opportunities that maximise learning.”
  • “The support for reading and literacy across the academy, including in the Early Years Foundation Stage, is excellent.”

 Behaviour and Safety

  • “There is a positive learning atmosphere throughout the academy. Pupils display excellent attitudes to learning. Throughout the academy, there is…a sense of excitement generated by pupils enjoying their learning.”
  • “The academy is an exceptionally calm and purposeful environment in which to learn and flourish socially, personally and academically.
  • Pupils’ attitudes to learning, in and out of lessons, are exceptional. Outstanding behaviour characterises all lessons.”     


We would like to congratulate our pupils who impressed our inspectors with the progress they have made, their attitude to learning and their polite and respectful behaviour. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all of the staff at Reach Academy for their hard work, dedication and commitment to ensuring that every one of our pupils is happy, healthy and learning well. Finally, we would like to thank our parents. Many of them chose to entrust their child’s education to us before they knew even where the school would be located, and without the opportunity to visit and see the school in action. We are delighted that their faith has been justified.

We look forward to seeing Reach Academy go from strength to strength in the months and years to come, beginning with our move to our new home this Autumn!
