THAME’S only secondary school has been praised as ‘outstanding’ in a recent Ofsted report.

Government inspectors recently visited Lord Williams’s and were full of praise in a report published this week.

The report said the school left pupils ‘exceptionally well prepared for later life’.

Lord Williams’s achieved an ‘outstanding’ overall which is the highest grade available.

The report said of the students: “A large majority continue their studies in the school’s good sixth form provision, from which a high proportion go to their chosen university, and others successfully enter employment or training.”

Head David Wybron said: “We are delighted with the result of the inspection. Lord Williams’s School is a vibrant community and our students thrive because of all the excellent teaching and support they receive.

“I am pleased that the inspectors recognised the considerable achievements of our students, the accuracy of the school’s self evaluation and the rigour of our future planning.

“The school has always recognised its responsibility to serve the community and this was another strong feature of the report.”

The inspection also took into account the opinions of the pupils’ parents whose thoughts were gauged via a questionnaire.

The full Ofsted report for the school is available on the school website
