On 13th and 14th October 2011 the school was inspected by five Ofsted Inspectors. They evaluated St Clement Danes as an ‘Outstanding’ school overall and ‘outstanding’ in every one of the 31 categories that make up the report. This places the school as one of the best schools in the country.
This is a fantastic endorsement of the hard work and achievement of the staff and the students at the school. As the Inspectors reported at the verbal debrief:
The standards achieved by St Clement Danes represent a huge professional and personal commitment to the education of young people.
Teaching at St Clement Danes was said to be ‘inspirational in pitch, collegiate in approach and founded on very high expectations and deep subject knowledge’ ensuring that ‘the students engage intellectually at a very high level with the rigors of the subject.’ Staff were praised for their ‘excellent subject knowledge’ presented in ‘a lively, enthusiastic and often inspiring way to challenge students.’
Students were commended for conducting themselves ‘in an exemplary fashion around the school and in lessons’ and for playing ‘an outstanding role in school and wide-ranging community events, taking their various responsibilities across the school extremely seriously’, whilst at the same time enjoying school immensely and feeling very safe.
