Pride as school improves

A YATE secondary school has been given a ‘good’ rating by inspectors, three years after being told it must improve.

Brimsham Green School head teacher Kim Garland said she was “proud” and “thrilled” that the hard work of pupils, staff, parents, governors and the council had been recognised by the team from education watchdog Ofsted.

After Ofsted’s previous visit in 2016 the school had been told it required improvement. In the latest report the inspectors praised staff for their “integrity and determination” to improve standards.
