Boldon School was rated as “Good” at its latest Ofsted inspection in September, after several years of being told to do better.

In May 2017 the secondary school underwent a full inspection and was rated as requiring improvements.

Following a monitoring visit in March 2018, Ofsted said leaders and governors were not taking effective action to tackle the areas in need of improvement.
