CSI - Catholic Schools Inspection

On the 16th and 17th November 2023, St Gabriel's was inspected by the Catholic School Inspectorate.
I am delighted to share with you details of our report which graded St Gabriel's overall quality of Catholic education as Good.
The key findings were as follows:
  • St Gabriel’s is a welcoming and inclusive community where everyone is embraced in Christ’s love, made explicit to them, within a vibrant partnership with the parish.
  • Its mission is comprehensive, well-known by pupils and staff, and a lived reality for all community members, resulting in excellent pupil behaviour.
  • Leaders’ and governors’ ambition to be an excellent Catholic school with Christ at its heart is high. This is reflected in the diligence with which they work and the time and energy they commit.
  • Pupils’ understanding of the topics covered in religious education is extended well through teachers’ effective use of questions, which are always carefully planned.
  • Pupils speak confidently about how prayer is influenced by the school’s curriculum and wider life.
