A LOCAL school has been told it ‘requires improvement’ by Ofsted inspectors.

Saint Pius X Catholic High School, based on Wath Wood Road in Wath, was the subject of the inspection in April.

The school currently has 693 pupils on its roll and was told by inspectors it ‘requires improvement’ for the second consecutive time.

A report said: “Pupils experience an inconsistent quality of education at the school.

“In some subjects, pupils are enthused about their learning. They are well-supported by staff and develop a secure understanding of the curriculum.

“However, this is not consistent across the school. Pupils at the school do not achieve as well as they could, or as well as the school want, in public examinations.

“In too many cases, this is reflected in weaknesses in the curriculum that pupils study or how it is taught.”
