Quality Mark Case Study: Millthorpe School

Quality Mark Example

Ruth Lingard, 14th January 2000

Introduction

Hello, I'm Ruth Lingard, one of two curriculum leaders for history at Millthorpe School in York. Millthorpe is an average-sized secondary school with a below average proportion of students eligible for the pupil premium. Millthorpe includes an average number of students with special educational needs among its intake and most students are from a white British background. The school has close links with the wider community and we in the history department take part in this. Students at the school make good progress. 

We have recently been visited for a history subject inspection and the findings of this also contribute to all of the key areas of the Quality Mark framework.
