Camden’s first academy school has been told it “requires improvement” following its first Ofsted inspection.
The UCL Academy school in Adelaide Road, Swiss Cottage, was told that it needs to improve the quality of its teaching, progress made by pupils and the way the school is managed in an Ofsted report published yesterday.
The ruling was made after the school’s first Ofsted inspection since it opened in 2012.
The report said that “lower-ability students find it difficult to maintain concentration” during lengthy two-hour lessons.
