Dear Parents/Guardians

The most recent Ofsted monitoring visit report is now available below and also available for viewing on the Ofsted website

The report is overwhelmingly positive, and provides a very strong vote of confidence for all we are doing.

Of course, we will not be complacent, but the report provides a good indication that we are definitely moving in the right direction and have solid foundations on which to base the future success of Penwortham Priory Academy.

Importantly, the report recognises that:

‘Senior leaders and governors are taking effective action to address the areas requiring improvement identified at the recent section 5 inspection in order for the academy to become good’.

I would ask that you each take the time to read the report in its entirety to be fully informed in relation to its content.

In the meantime, I hope that we can rely on your continued support to ensure we each play our part to support your child with their education, both at home and at school, so that they can achieve the success they are capable of.

Many thanks,


Mr M Eastham
