Glowing school inspection for St Peter's

ST PETER’S Catholic School and Specialist Science College has been rated good by inspectors, the third highest rating out of a possible four.

An Ofsted inspection last month found the Whitefields Road, Solihull school to be a “good with many outstanding features”.

It found: “Staff, governors and students are actively involved in making this a strongly inclusive school which effectively raises the aspirations of its students and staff alike.”

Yet it said “opportunities are missed” to for teachers to share “outstanding” practice.

It said: “Teachers indulge in over-long explanations and pose questions that do not always broaden the students' thinking.”
