Students & Parents
Wath Comprehensive School seeks to enlarge and enrich the experiences of school students and of the wider community it serves. We have a key role to play in transforming educational aspiration in Rotherham and the Dearne Valley.

Performance Data and Ofsted
Two of the key measures by which all schools are judged are school performance tables and Ofsted reports. You can find our exam results here:
Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. It reports directly to Parliament and is independent. Its purpose is to regulate and inspect services which care for children and young people. Ofsted generally inspects secondary schools every 5 years, although the frequency of inspections can increase under certain circumstances. Its latest report can be found here:
Ofsted is interested in the views of parents and carers. If you would like to express your views you can go to the Parent View website: it is a simple 12 question survey to gauge your opinions of our school.
