What are the outstanding schools in Hertfordshire?
- Credit: Archant
There are 47 schools in Stevenage, North Herts, St Albans and Hitchin and Harpenden that are currently rated as 'outstanding' by Ofsted.
Nine secondary schools across the area carry the inspection body’s top rating, while three are special education schools, and the remaining are primary or infant schools.
Ofsted, or the Office for Standards in Education, inspects and rates all state schools, rating them either inadequate, requires improvement, good or outstanding.
Ofsted states that an outstanding school is highly effective in “delivering outcomes that provide exceptionally well for all its pupils’ needs”.
Some 'recent' inspections date back a number of years because routine inspections are carried out at schools rated 'good' or below.
