Ofsted Inspection


Portal House was last inspected by Ofsted on 4th June 2015 and was graded as a ‘Good’ school.

The following extracts are taken from the Inspection Report:

Students have made good progress in all subjects, including communication, English and mathematics. The school enters all its students for a good range of GCSEs and so they are well prepared for the future.

Reading is taught extremely well across the school. Students with gaps in their education when they join the school become fluent readers in a short space of time.

Students’ behaviour is exceptionally well managed. As a result, students with complex  behaviour difficulties are making outstanding progress in improving their behaviour.
