Ofsted and Performance
Montpelier High School (MHS) is a non-selective girls’ school with a fully comprehensive, diverse intake of students. One in four of the 2022 Year 11 cohort qualified for Pupil Premium (additional funding for disadvantaged students); one in five students had a special educational need; 44% of students come from a minority ethnic group; and 15% speak English as an additional language.
MHS is rated amongst the top 20% of secondary schools nationally for attainment and progress, which means that students of all prior attainment, whatever their starting point, make outstanding progress at MHS. The school is also in the top 20% nationally for the full range of subjects: English, maths, science, EBacc, creative, vocational and practical subjects.
In addition, the 2022 A Level results for MHS's co-eductional V6 Sixth Form broke school records for top grades and outstanding destinations. One in ten grades are the top A* with 30% of grades at A*/A and over half (55%) a B or above. The overall pass rate at A-level was 98%, with 77% of grades at A*- C.

Given the uneven impact of the pandemic on school and college performance data, the government has said you should not make direct comparisons between the performance data for one school or college and another, or to data from previous years.
Our school was rated Outstanding by Ofsted from 2010-2022, when it was downgraded. You can read the inspection report here.
A further monitoring visit took place on 6 December 2022. You can read the inspection report here.
We are working hard to bring about the improvements needed and are pleased that Ofsted found early signs of progress during a monitoring inspection in December 2022.
Everyone at MHS is determined to ensure the school swiftly returns to excellence in all areas of its provision, offering a safe and nurturing environment in which young people can succeed academically and thrive in every aspect of their lives.
