A Diocese church inspection has praised religious studies as outstanding at east London’s Bishop Challoner Catholic secondary schools.
The Church systematically assessed the work in two reports which evaluated the schools’ worship and religious education.
Their ‘Catholic life’ was “outstanding”, inspectors found, with classroom education ‘good’ in the Boys’ school and ‘outstanding’ in the Girls’ school.
Boys’ teachers “know their pupils well and there is strong behaviour for learning”.
Headteacher Niamh Arnull was praised for having made “a significant impact on promoting the school’s Catholic life”.
