Sir John Cass Foundation and Redcoat School is an outstanding school. The headteacher together with his senior leadership team and governing body have very successfully created an inclusive community where students of diverse cultures and backgrounds are equally valued and reach high levels of achievement. Parents and carers are supportive of the school, especially appreciating the quality of education and care provided for their children. One parent said, '...there should be more schools with the teaching capability of SJC where many of the teachers are dedicated and heroic!' Indeed, the school provides excellent opportunities for students to 'achieve their personal best'; they reach high levels of personal development and good academic attainment through a stimulating and well-ordered learning environment. They are taught well through a curriculum that meets students' needs and receive excellent care and support.
Good results are achieved through careful tracking of students' progress, consistently good teaching, mentoring, as well as additional revision classes and strong parental support. Students enter the school with average levels of attainment. They leave in Year 11 with the majority making outstanding progress, thus gaining good foundations for their future education or employment.
