Welcome to the new Willoughby School Website!

Welcome to the Willoughby School Website.  Willoughby is an all age (2 – 19) Special School, for pupils with moderate, severe, profound and complex learning needs.

The Willoughby School Vision is to inspire every child to achieve excellence in their learning and personal development through creativity and innovation in a happy and safe environment.

Willoughby is a ‘Good’ school (Ofsted 2016), and we strive to provide outstanding academic and pastoral provision for all of our pupils.  We do this through focusing on four key priorities:

  • The impact of leadership at all levels to promote a culture of continuous improvement
  • Consistently high quality teaching, learning and assessment to promote learning and raise students’ achievement 
  • Positive attitudes and behaviours of all,  promoting a thirst for knowledge and a love of learning
  • Students make rapid and sustained progress throughout year groups, key stages and across all subjects

Through these objectives, we deliver individualised and personalised learning experiences and pathways for each of our 84 pupils.  If you would like to find out more about Willoughby school or visit our provision please contact the school via email: reception@willoughbyschool.com

Ofsted Short Report 2016

We received a visit from OFSTED in the third week of September 2016. I am delighted to report that the school continues to be good and safeguarding effective.  The visit went extremely well with the school maintaining its good OFSTED rating. Many strengths of the school were highlighted including; 

  • All staff and governors spoken to during the inspection demonstrate a fierce determination to improve the school further.
  • At the heart of this good-quality work is the desire to meet the needs of the individual pupils.
  • Relationships between staff and pupils are excellent.
  • Staff and governors demonstrate a determination to enable the school to deliver an outstanding quality of education for the pupils.
  • Inspectors found the behaviour of pupils to be very good.

The report identifies four areas for development. All of which will form the core components of the school improvement plan over the coming years.
