Frome Vale Academy and Snowdon Village had a visit from Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector Amanda Spielman and Regional Director, for the South West James McNeille after Frome Vale Academy’s recent ‘Outstanding’ Judgement from Ofsted in January. This remains the first outstanding judgement in the South West region this academic year.

They were welcomed by Steve Taylor CEO of the Cabot Learning Federation, Jan Saunders Principal of Frome Vale and Alex Davies, Principal of Snowdon Village which includes the Nest provision.

They spent time talking to staff about the recent Ofsted grading before they were given a tour by Frome Vale citizens around the academy where they spoke to pupils about their work.

Jan Saunders said ‘it was a pleasure to welcome Amanda and James as visitors to Frome Vale, our children gave them a tour and enjoyed talking to them about life as a Frome Vale Citizen’
