A Hampshire school has earned its very own gold star thanks to a glowing Ofsted report.

Bohunt School in Liphook has been praised across the board by Ofsted – with inspectors describing it as 'exceptional' and 'inspiring'.

The school was judged 'Outstanding', with the report stating: “The school is highly ambitious on behalf of its young people.” Pupils’ behaviour and attitudes, their personal development, and the school’s sixth form were among those that received the highest scores. The teachers are said to be 'experts', and the curriculum is described as 'inspiring', with a 'vast range of extra-curricular activities'.

"This is a superb report, confirming that Bohunt School is – as the inspectors say – exceptional," said Neil Strowger, headteacher of Bohunt School and leader of the Bohunt Education Trust. "I believe it is impossible to adequately describe and distil all the activities and opportunities that schools offer with a single-word judgment."

Bohunt School, part of Bohunt Education Trust, was rated by the Sunday Times as one of the top 20 comprehensive schools nationally earlier this year.

Randall Jull, head of Bohunt School said: “I am delighted that Ofsted saw what we take as the daily validation of our school – the unwavering support of our parents, superb students who are curious, respectful, and tenacious in their pursuit of excellence, and truly exceptional staff who always go the extra mile to ensure our students are the game-changers of tomorrow. It's a privilege to be part of this exceptionality."
