“Spiritual, moral, social and cultural provision is outstanding.”

“Extra-curricular provision and participation are outstanding.”


Our last Ofsted Inspection was in September 2013. Below you can find extracts as well as direct links to the Ofsted report.


Newquay Tretherras is delighted with its latest OFSTED Inspection report which has identified many outstanding features of the school. The academy’s programme of abundant extra-curricular opportunities is especially singled out for praise as is the very high numbers of students who participate in them. The report states that:

“Extra-curricular provision and participation are outstanding. Two thirds of students regularly attend after school clubs. There are numerous opportunities for both competitive and non-competitive sport. More than half the students represented the Academy at sport last year. Over 400 students participate on the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme. Many students take part in musical and theatrical events, even including an overseas tour by the Jazz Band.”

The academy’s Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural provision is also described as Outstanding with assemblies “having a strong moral character and contributing greatly to the school’s ethos” and providing students with opportunities to reflect on important spiritual matters. The school’s artwork is commended as enhancing the environment and the students are described as “courteous and respectful to one another, to staff, and visitors.” They are praised for taking on a wide range of responsibilities, charity fundraising and becoming national and European winners in Young Enterprise.

Strong partnership working was identified by the Inspection Team who commended Tretherras’ leadership of the local Sports Network as well as providing a wide range teaching and support to local primary schools. The principal of Newquay Junior Academy, Steve Bywater, said: “Newquay Junior Academy is proud of Tretherras’ achievements and looks forward to a long and fruitful relationship”.

“The Headteacher has high expectations of staff and students.”

“Students behave well in lessons and around the school. They have good attitudes to learning and get on well together.”

“Parents have a strong belief in the ability of the school to teach and look after their children well.”

“Students make good progress so that, by the end of Year 11, they reach standards which are above average in most subjects.”
