PUPILS and staff are celebrating after their school received a glowing report from inspectors.
Ofsted chiefs visited the Cardinal Allen High School, in Fleetwood, in March and judged each of the five inspection areas to be at a good level.
The behaviour of pupils drew particular praise as did attendance, keenness to learn and achievements.
And the report is a source of enormous pride to Philip Mooney, headteacher at the Melbourne Avenue school.
He said: “We’re delighted with the report and even more so because of the way in which the inspection team praised our fantastic pupils.
“It is a credit not only to the pupils but also to all of my staff and to the magnificent support that we receive from parents and families.
“The development of better teaching is a constant drive for us at Cardinal Allen, I am determined to ensure all teaching is of the highest quality and I’m very confident in the direction we are moving.
“My colleagues and I are determined to give our best for the children in our care.”
Ruth James, lead inspector for Ofsted, wrote: “The school provides a good education within a caring and supportive environment. The promotion of students’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is excellent.
“Behaviour and teaching are good, students achieve well and make good progress.”
