Ilford school awarded for ‘excellence’ by Ofsted
An Ilford school has been recognised by Ofsted for “oustanding commitment to the welfare, development and progress of its pupils”.
Cranbrook School, in Mansfield Road, is an independent school with children aged between three and 18.
Ofsted reporting inspector David Young said: “Cranbrook aims to put excellence in teaching, with traditional values, at the heart of its education.
“The school’s vision places a strong emphasis on the development of personal qualities, including courtesy and respect, which helps students engage with interest and enthusiasm in their learning.
“As a result of high expectations and good attention to students’ personal needs, students throughout the school have very positive attitudes to learning and their behaviour is outstanding.”
The former Glenarm College was merged with the school last year.
Headteacher Ivan Mulinder said: “This report is a great endorsement of the staff and pupils at Cranbrook and the very special atmosphere and approach to learning that we have developed in recent years.
