Ofsted Inspection Report

On 19th and 20th September 2017, Ofsted visited the Academy with inspectors looking at different aspects of the school. As a result of this inspection, John Madejski Academy has been removed from special measures. This result represents a huge turnaround from the school’s previous inspection, conducted in November 2015.

Among the reasons Ofsted gave for the Academy’s success were; “The new leadership team inspired by the commitment and missionary-like zeal of the principal”, and “the rapidly improving teaching”.
