About Redmoor Academy

Since the introduction of a new Principal and leadership team in 2017, Redmoor has experienced sustained and continuous improvement to ensure our students make better progress than similar students nationally.  This was recognized in our most recent Ofsted inspection in September 2021 where we were judged securely “good” in all areas, demonstrated by 6 years of positive Progress 8 and fantastic GCSE outcomes for students, evidenced in the social development of our students as they become valuable members of the community and affirmed by the significant over subscription for places in Year 7 we experience every year.

We continue to invest significantly in our building and facilities, including new classrooms, ICT provision, science laboratories and refurbished sports courts.  The school is consistently and substantially oversubscribed with over 900 students on roll. Excitingly and as a result of our continued success, we are about to expand further, increasing the number of students that can be admitted into Year 7 with an investment of £10 million to develop our sports, science, art and catering facilities to provide a first-class learning environment.

We set high aspirations within a culture of academic excellence, evidenced by the excellent progress students of all abilities make and the number of Grade 9s and Distinction *s in our GCSE results. We teach the majority of subjects in mixed attainment groups and are passionate in our desire for every student to be successful.  Our ethos is underpinned by a strong and supportive pastoral culture which promotes pupil well-being, as we believe in the education of the whole child in order to equip them to be good citizens in society.

Ofsted report

The school’s most recent Ofsted visit in September 2021 recognised that Redmoor is “ambitious for everyone to do well in all aspects of school life and is a school that serves its community well”and that “pupils and staff are very proud of their school.”   The inspection report confirmed what was widely known in the local community: that Redmoor Academy was a good school, with the quality of teaching, the curriculum, pastoral care and leadership all identified as strong.
