17 February 2017
Well done to all at Saint Nathaniel’s Academy in Stoke-on-Trent for their recent Ofsted Report.
From the third worst school in England to Good with Outstanding features.
A summary of the report:
- Overall effectiveness: Good
- Effectiveness of leadership and management: Outstanding
- Quality of teaching, learning and assessment: Good
- Personal development, behaviour and welfare: Good
- Outcomes for pupils: Good
- Early years provision: Outstanding
The report fully acknowledges the fantastic work being done by The St Bart’s Multi-Academy Trust.
It made a specific mention that “the work of the trust, along with Britannia Teaching School Alliance, has been highly effective in helping to secure improvements in all aspects of the school.”
A great story and a huge well done to all involved.
“We are very proud of the transformation of Saint Nathaniel’s Academy, whose predecessor school was the third worst performing in England. The huge improvement in the quality of education from inadequate to “Good” over all, with many “Outstanding” features, demonstrates the full commitment of the Trust, academy leaders and the whole staff team to provide very best for the children. The love and care shown to all and the support given to families is rightly acknowledged in the Ofsted and SIAMS reports as a key strength. Well done to everyone.”
Chris Brislen, CEO of The St Bart’s Multi-Academy Trust
“To think where the school came from and where the academy is now is miraculous. The most important thing has been the team. Everybody involved in the life of the school has been committed to moving it forward. Parents have stuck with the school, knowing these improvements were coming. It’s a credit to them and to our lovely children.”
Sean Thompson, Principal at Saint Nathaniel’s Academy

Saint Nathaniel’s Ofsted Report
For the last eight years, the team at Saint Nathaniel’s Academy has been working with pupils to develop and transform the school’s garden into a valuable, child-safe asset that is much-loved by its many pupils.
Forty children from across the Trust attended Rugby Development Training hosted by Longton Rugby Club.
The first of March saw two new academies join the St. Bart’s family – Whitchurch CE Infant and Nursery Academy and Whitchurch CE Junior Academy.
