Oliver House School rated as ‘Outstanding’ for the fourth time

Inspectors did not identify a single improvement area, but instead praised how ‘parents, carers and pupils described the support that they have received through the school as lifechanging’.

Ofsted went on to praise how ‘leaders at all levels have created a unique learning environment in which pupils flourish’ and said: “Pupils delight in attending this unique school. They feel highly valued and appreciated. Pupils’ many individual talents and achievements are celebrated.”

Inspectors also praised Oliver House School’s ‘incredibly clear vision of what the curriculum should look like for all its pupils’, calling the team ‘outwardly facing and exceptionally reflective when designing and implementing bespoke curriculums to meet the needs of its pupils, all of whom have SEND.’

Oliver House School, which is part of the Education division within Aspris Children’s Services, is an independent specialist school for boys and girls aged 6 to 19 who have mild, moderate and severe autism and associated complex learning needs, behaviours that may challenge and/or associated anxiety.

Lisa Sharrock, Head of Education at Oliver House School, said: “It is a real privilege to lead an outstanding autism provision. The staff team do a phenomenal job in supporting young people with autism (and associated complex needs) to make remarkable progress in all areas. I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their unrelenting hard work – staff, pupils and their parents and guardians for working so closely with us to make this unique school community.”

John Anderson, Chief Operating Officer of Aspris Education, added: “Oliver House School has set the benchmark for how an aspirational school should operate with this fantastic Ofsted report. It’s one of the most positive reports I have ever seen and is testament to the dedication of the team at Oliver House who are all so committed to providing outstanding outcomes to the wonderful pupils who thrive at the school.”

Well done Oliver House School on this remarkable achievement of being rated as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted for the fourth time.
