Inspection report highlights aspirational and positive climate for learning

4:31pm - 06 February 2024

Our Lady’s High School in Cumbernauld has received a very positive Education Scotland inspection report which commended the high-quality learning, teaching and attainment.

The report praised the strong and effective leadership of the headteacher, who is well supported by all staff, as well as the aspirational and positive climate for learning.

It also states that teachers support the learning of young people very well through effective questioning while providing high-quality feedback to all learners.

High levels of attainment in literacy were recognised, and inspectors noted the wide range of well-considered clubs and activities that develop young people’s leadership skills and skills for learning, life and work.

Education Scotland inspectors visited the school in October 2023 and met with the head teacher and staff, parents, carers and young people.

Nicola Cunningham, Head Teacher of Our Lady’s High School in Cumbernauld, said: “We are delighted that Education Scotland recognised that all staff work together to ensure that our young people are well supported in their learning.  

“We are extremely proud of our pupils and their fantastic contribution during the inspection. We look forward to building on our success in the future to further enhance our community of faith and learning.”

The school’s inspection report also identified the next steps in its continuing improvement journey.

“I would like to congratulate Nicola and her team at Our Lady’s High School on the report, which reflects the hard work and commitment of all the teachers and staff to providing a first-class education for every pupil,” said Councillor Angela Campbell, Convener of Education, Children and Families Committee.

“It is also testament to the hard work of the pupils themselves as well as the families and local community who support the school's work in so many ways. Well done to everyone involved.”
