“Simon Balle School provides good quality, holistic education to its students. Relationships between staff and students are exceptionally good, resulting in a strong sense of mutual respect and loyalty; this school is a delightful place in which to teach and learn. It has a distinctive ethos that is rooted in a strong belief in personal values and social justice for both its students and staff.
It has a well-justified reputation locally for this holistic approach to education. The school purposefully delivers education ‘in the round’ that effectively enriches and enhances students’ social, moral and spiritual understanding. As a result, students achieve good academic outcomes and outstanding personal development and well-being. The headteacher personifies the attributes she seeks to develop in others, and leads by her excellent example. In turn, school leaders and other staff model the dignity and consideration they expect to see in students. The school is well led and managed. Individuals, be they students or staff, are well known to the school, and the school is very effective in caring for and supporting its community.”
