Our most recent inspection was in September 2011 and we were delighted to be judged Outstanding by Her Majesty's Inspectorate.

Ofsted rightly recognised that the "academic standards attained by students at all ages are exceptionally high. What is more, although the girls start with high prior attainment, they continue to make good and often excellent progress".

More hearteningly, their key praise was for the personal development of the girls, our highest aim. "What impresses any visitor, however, are the highly developed inter-personal, social and civic skills of the students. They are unfailingly polite, support each other exceptionally well and forge excellent relationships with the adults responsible for their education and care."

Our "outstanding leadership and management" were recognised and the "outstanding curriculum" was described as "extremely well matched to students' preferences and ambitions".

The report, and the school, were best summarised with this line: "KGGS is outstanding because it produces successful, confident, mature young women who are well equipped to succeed in the next stages of the education and lives."
