We have received a very pleasing report. The inspectors agreed with all of the judgments that we had made of ourselves through our own self-evaluation and commented upon the good progress made since the previous inspection in 2009.
The report is divided into a number of sections. These are: Achievement of Pupils, Quality of Teaching, Behaviour and Safety of Pupils and Leadership and Management. Judgments in these areas lead to a judgment of the overall effectiveness of the school. All areas were judged to be good, with the inspectors identifying strengths in many areas.

Pinewood is a community of enthusiastic learners who find excitement throughout their time with us. We help and encourage pupils to be knowledgeable, thoughtful, and to speak their minds, because we want them to be comfortable with who they are and to have the confidence and the skills to make their way in the world when they leave us.
We work closely with staff, parents and pupils to ensure that the time each pupil spends with us is safe and happy as well as successful and we hope that you will support the school in providing a stable, pleasant and well-ordered environment.
While this website provides a wealth of information, it is no substitute for a visit to our school. We welcome you along to talk with our pupils and their staff, to walk around our exceptional school, and to get a feeling for what it would be like to be a member of the Pinewood School community.
