Message from Mr Halcro:

As you may be aware, we had our latest OFSTED inspection on the 2-3 April 2019. I am delighted to announce that has been graded good in all areas. This is a real testament to the hard work of the staff and students at Selston High School.

The report is now available for you to download below, if you would like a printed copy then please contact the school as there are copies available in reception.


The inspectors noted:

“Pupils are polite and courteous to each other. Mutual respect between pupils and staff is clearly evident. There is a convivial atmosphere during social times and a calm learning environment throughout lessons. Pupils feel safe, well cared for and supported in school.”

“Relationships between adults and pupils are productive and supportive. Teachers create a positive learning environment in lessons. Teachers have a strong grasp of their subject knowledge and the external assessment requirements.”

There are many other positive comments in the report and OFSTED stated:

“Senior leaders have accurately identified the school’s strengths and weaknesses. Their improvement plans are having a positive impact”

So please be assured that we will continue to develop the school so that it improves even further.

Once again thank you for your ongoing support.


Message from Mrs G Haslam - Chair of Governors

"We feel privileged to be the Governors of Selston High School, especially as the recent Ofsted inspection deemed us to have maintained our previous Good status.  The inspection was very thorough and involved lesson observations, work scrutiny, meetings with teachers, middle and senior leaders and governors.  

Whilst we are delighted with the report we are not complacent and shall continue to support and challenge in order to improve the provision for our students.  We shall also continue to work closely with the Headteacher to ensure the clear strategic direction and accountability of the school.

Our students and staff are our biggest asset and we shall continue to work hard to provide them with opportunities to benefit them in their future lives."
