Sheridan School, near Thetford, was praised for its effective leadership, quality of teaching, and the personal development, behaviour and achievements of pupils after the latest inspection, which took place in January.

Inspectors also praised the small classes and how the school catered to young people’s individual needs.

Paul Sanderson, head of school, said: “I am delighted with this report. It demonstrates the hard work that our staff do to support our pupils to reach their full potential.

“It is pleasing that we have received praise for our work experience and offsite activities, as we think this is very important to our pupils’ personal and social development.”

The school is managed by Priory Education and Children’s Services, which is part of the Priory Group of mental health specialists.
