Ofsted

We are proud of our considerable successes and achievements, all of which have been fully verified by official formal inspections. Our achievements are the direct result of our clear mission to attain excellence, and this is demonstrated in our examination and test results.

St Dominic’s has two inspections – one for education and the other for residential (social care inspection). We are delighted that our most recent Residential inspection was judged Outstanding (Ofsted February 2019) and our most recent Education Inspection was judged Good (Ofsted November 2017).
