St Catherine’s School, Ventnor is celebrating its latest Ofsted Education and Care report which praised its work.

Following a three-day intensive Ofsted inspection in June, St Catherine’s received accolades for both its education and care for children and young people with speech, language and communication needs. The school received an Outstanding for the welfare services it provides for residential students, while education was rated Good. As the inspector noted,



“Students live happy, active lives at school. They enjoy warm, trusting relationships with each other and staff. This underpins excellent progress in their social development.”

He continued,

“Students develop as confident learners and members of the wider community… They are exceptionally well-behaved”.



Dr Brendan Carleton, Principal of St Catherine’s said,

“We are delighted with the result of this joint Ofsted inspection, which is a great example of the excellent teamwork here at St Catherine’s. I would like to thank everyone – staff, governors, students and parents – for their continued support with our ultimate goal of supporting students with speech, language and communication needs to reach their full potential. We are especially pleased with these results as we launch two new services this month to further support our young people’s needs. As well as opening new provision for young children in Key Stage 2, we are now developing sign-supported English.”
