Areas where the inspectors would like to see improvements include raising attainment in maths and science subjects, planning for additional work so that pupils gaining higher standards can be further challenged, helping pupils gain a broader understanding of their roles and responsibilities as young citizens beyond their school and local community.

In a letter to the school following the inspection, the inspectors thanked the pupils for being so polite and interested and for asking lots of questions which they hoped they were able to answer. “Beeston is a satisfactory school”, the inspectors said.
