Dear Mr Coles

Short inspection of Groby Community College

Following my visit to the school on 20 September 2016 with Dick Vasey, Ofsted
Inspector, I write on behalf of Her Majesty's Chief Inspector of Education, Children's
Services and Skills to report the inspection findings. The visit was the first short
inspection carried out since the school was judged to be good in February 2013.

This school continues to be good.

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school
since the last inspection.

Since you joined the school, just before the last inspection, you have worked with
enthusiasm and dedication to bring about an ethos of hard work and high
expectations. This has resulted in positive outcomes for the pupils who attend the
school. Typically, the pupils show positive attitudes to learning. The school fosters in
the pupils a sense of self-worth and of respect for others.

The governing body is very effective in its strategic role. As well as giving you
support and challenge, governors have confidence in your passion and
determination to bring about further improvements in the school. They, like you, are
very ambitious for the school's future. You evaluate the strengths and weaknesses
of your school meticulously and identify priorities for improvement in your carefully
constructed school improvement plan.
You and governors have brought about significant improvements by implementing a
range of strategies. At times this has meant making difficult decisions and taking
swift action to ensure that the school continues to be good. You are not afraid to
challenge weak performance and take rigorous action to improve the quality of
teaching where standards fall below those expected.
