Ofsted: too many of our brightest children are being let down in the state system

13 Jun 2013

Too many of the most able children and young people are underperforming in our non-selective state secondary schools, a new report by Ofsted reveals today.

The landmark survey, The most able students: are they doing as well as they should in our non-selective secondary schools?, finds that too few maintained schools and academies set high enough expectations of what their brightest students can achieve.

Ofsted reached its conclusions having reviewed evidence from a variety of sources, including reports from over 2,000 lessons observed by inspectors, and visits to 41 non-selective secondary schools across the country.
