The Compass free school in Bermondsey has had a boost with a positive report from Ofsted.
Last July inspectors gave the secondary school a ‘requires improvement‘ rating – the second lowest possible grade.
In January, Ofsted inspector Madeleine Gerard carried out a monitoring visit to the school.
Her letter to headteacher Lauren Thorpe has just been made public.
Ms Gerard wrote:
You, senior leaders and members of the governing body have wasted no time in tackling issues for improvement. Working effectively together, you have put your energy into taking action to bring about improvements. You have a clear vision and coherent and strategic plans, which address the key priorities.
