Our last inspection was in 2007, when the school was judged to be outstanding. The inspection team looked at all aspects of the school including: standards of achievement, teaching and learning, the personal development and well-being of students, and leadership and management. All were graded outstanding which put the school in the top 5% of schools in the country.
All students at the school received a letter from the inspectors. In this they wrote "We have given your school our top grade ...it is a tribute to everyone at Waldegrave including you...one of the reasons for this success is your attitude to school."
Some schools are inspected every three years, others may have their inspections deferred. The inspectors look at students' acaemic achievement and attendance before they decide whether they can wait longer than three years. In July 2010 Ofsted wrote to the school and to our parents to let us know that the next full inspection would not be earlier than September 2011.
