Ofsted & SIAMS


In 2017 Esher High School had a short Ofsted inspection, and the resulting findings were reported in a letter to Mr Boddington which is attached. 

The key finding was that the school remains as it was at the last inspection: it is a Good School. 

Headteacher, Mr Boddington wrote to Parents

“We are pleased by this outcome as the parameters for attaining this judgement have become more challenging since the last inspection and so this is a move forward rather than staying still.  However, it is my ambition to use this as an opportunity to continue building the quality of education that the children enjoy for the school to become truly great”.


In addition to Ofsted inspections, Church schools also undergo a denominational inspection - the Statutory Inspection of Anglican & Methodist Schools, SIAMS, which assesses the effectiveness of Church of England and Methodist schools.  In 2015, Esher High School's inspection judged the school as a 'good' school and it has not been inspected since this time.

It judged that the impact of a distinctively articulated Christian ethos is becoming increasingly more overt and explicit which is making a difference to the quality of students’ learning and wellbeing and is having a positive impact on the school environment.

"Students are well behaved and considerate of others. They have a strong belief in charitable giving as a way to live out the school’s Christian ethos".
