Parent View - Give Ofsted your view on your child's schoolHigh Crags Academy was formed on the 1st April 2016 and became part of Star Academies on 1st April 2018. The school was last inspected in March 2019 and was judged to be ‘good’ overall with ‘outstanding’ early years provision.

Our school takes advantage of Star Academies’ proven Academy improvement system, which has delivered outstanding outcomes in other Star schools. To learn more about the Star approach to standards and improvement, click here.

Pupil attainment and teaching standards are kept under constant review and we carry out regular self-evaluations. We also get regular visits from our Star Quality Assurance Inspector (SQAI), a highly experienced educationalist. The SQAI quality-assures our self-evaluations and supports and challenges us to make sure we stay on track for Ofsted success.
