Clacton County High School on verge of being ‘outstanding’… despite power cut hours before surprise Ofsted inspection
A school in Clacton is celebrating after being told it is on the verge of becoming “outstanding” despite a surprise visit by Ofsted inspectors the day after a power cut.
Pupils and teachers were sent home from Clacton County High School after the power failure in Walton Road on January 8.
Shortly after the decision, the school received a call from Ofsted to say a one-day “short inspection” would take place the next day.
The report – published this week – said the school continues to be good, but it is improving towards becoming outstanding.
