OFSTED Inspection

Dear Parents,
I am writing to thank you for filling in the Ofsted parent questionnaires and for all your overwhelming positive comments. The inspectors were really pleased to see the strong teaching and learning and complimented us on the excellent behavior demonstrated by our students. The Lead Inspector has informed me that the outcome of the inspection has to remain confidential until such time that the final report is published. This should come within 14 days.Thank you for your phenomenal support. I wish you a happy and peaceful weekend.

GCSE results are in – How should we feel? 

This has been an excellent year for Khalsa Secondary Academy GCSE students.  We are delighted with our results as they are a testimony to the hard work and effort of our staff and students. Khalsa Secondary Academy has stepped up to the challenge at a time of rapid educational change and increased rigour at GCSE level.
Achievement in the core subjects was very impressive with 81% of our students achieving 5 A*-C grades. We are incredibly proud that some of our most able Khalsa students managed to achieve the elusive Grade 9 in each of the core disciplines.
The level of performance by the other subjects right across the curriculum has been very strong with a marked number of pupils achieving A*/A grades.
We are incredibly proud of these students. Achieving these targets takes dedication, hard work and commitment from our staff and students and we are delighted to know that they are all moving on to the next phase of their education successfully.
We wish all of our students ongoing success. They leave with our grateful thanks for their excellent contribution to the life of our school over the last five years.

Summer is finally here!
July 2017

 Thank you to everyone who has made the last week so great; the trips away, the work experience, the brilliant activities in school.Thank you to every parent, family member and carer for supporting the school.
Thank you to all the staff for your hard work and dedication. You are an amazing team and I feel so lucky to work with you.
Thank you to all those colleagues who are leaving us for new opportunities but most of all thank you to the students. Sounds obvious, but you make the school what it is and you make my job so much fun.
Have a great summer everyone and come back ready to do it all again in September!

Best wishes,

Mrs Piesse
