A Worcester secondary school has been reviewed as "good" by Ofsted maintaining the standard since 2013. 

Blessed Edward Oldcorne Catholic College was found to be "a clean and bright place to learn" by Ofsted inspectors.

They also found pupils were proud to be a part of the school community. 

Inspectors found pupils have trusted adults they can speak to if they have any concerns and parents and carers are generally kept very informed and recommend the school highly.

Inspectors said: "Pupils look after their school well.

"Pupils respect their environment, staff and each other. Staff make sure that new pupils settle in quickly so that they feel part of the school.

"As a result, pupils feel valued and can flourish."

Ofsted found pupils with SEND receive effective support and that different methods of support are put in place to allow these pupils to make progress. 

To improve the school, inspectors added: "Leaders have not put the EBacc at the centre of their curriculum.

"As a result, some pupils do not access the academic breadth that this suite of subjects provides.

"Leaders do not have a fully developed understanding of how well the curriculum is implemented in each subject.

"Consequently, their work to determine which subjects should be a focus of their school improvement priorities is relatively new.

"Leaders should carry on the work they have started to evaluate different subjects."

Greg McClarey, head teacher of the school, said: "We are pleased that Ofsted inspectors recognised the lengths our staff go to ensure that our students are at the centre of everything that we do.

"A commitment to everyone in our community growing as people of good character is at the heart of what we do while ensuring that our students are taught a broad and wide ranging curriculum which best meets their individual needs.

"Staff at Blessed Edward’s are confident in what they do but continue to keep their feet on the ground and recognise that there is always room for further improvement.

"Plans are already in place to ensure that our school continues to develop and improve further, while retaining the unique ethos which makes it such a special place to work and study."
