Ofsted and Performance Data

Please find below our most recent Ofsted reports and relevant information from the Department for Education Performance Tables. 


Ofsted report


Catch22 include Bristol is monitored by Ofsted. The school was last inspected in April 2016 and received a ‘Good’ rating. The reports states:

‘Encouraging everyone to be the best that they can be is at the heart of this school community.’

‘The school’s ethos, along with the shared vision and high expectations of all staff, enables everyone throughout the school to thrive.’

‘Pupils and students leave school ready for the world of work, education and training. They successfully attain a good range of certificated courses, including GCSEs, which enables them to pursue and achieve their new ambitions.’

Catch22 Include Bristol has a ‘Good’ Ofsted rating (April 2016) that we are very proud of. We now operate from a number of sites across Bristol and the South West. In March 2017 and April 2018 we asked the Department for Education for permission to teach more students aged between 11 and 13 across Midsomer Norton, Chippenham and Trowbridge.


When you open new sites, this triggers a visit from Ofsted. It is not a full rating inspection, it is a material change inspection relating to the changes in our School registration details. While we were happy with much of the feedback on the quality of teaching, environment and approach across most of our sites, the feedback on Midsomer Norton was less positive. It is clear that we have significant improvements to make at Midsomer Norton.

School performance


Our aims are to ensure that all students leave with a positive destination and with a range of age related qualifications. This includes the aim that all students leave with at least five qualifications (at least one will be a GCSE) including English and Maths.

In 2017-18 75% of our learners achieved English and Maths qualifications and more than 70% have gone on to a positive destination. Some of the headline figures for our results are below, however if you would like more information please do not hesitate to contact Mark Kennedy or the administration office.



Further information about school performance can be found on the Department of Education school and college performance website.


Parents and carers are encouraged to give feedback about the school to Ofsted directly, using the Ofsted Parent View questionnaire.
