Eden Girls' School, Slough continues to be an outstanding school.

The principal of this school is Sajid Khaliq.

This school is part of Star Academies multi-academy trust, which means other people in the trust also have responsibility for running the school. The trust is run by the chief executive officer (CEO), Sir Mufti Hamid Patel CBE, and overseen by a board of trustees, chaired by Kamruddin Kothia OBE DL. There is also a Regional Director, Shahina Ahmad OBE, who is responsible for this school and five others.

What is it like to attend this school?

Pupils are proud and happy to be a part of this warm, welcoming school where they excel both academically and personally. T...heir attendance is exceptionally high. The school's 'STAR' values of service, teamwork, ambition and respect are reflected in everything the school does.

The school sets high expectations and pupils enjoy rising to them. Pupils achieve exceptionally well in national examinations and produce high-quality work across all their subjects.

Pupils are immensely polite, friendly and respectful.

They welcome visitors and share their school experiences enthusiastically. Working relationships between staff and pupils are extremely positive. Behaviour is exemplary in lessons and around the school site.

Great care, compassion and calmness permeate the school.

The inspirational opportunities that pupils have to achieve the school's aim of 'Shine Like a Star' are extensive. There are a wide range of clubs and societies that foster interest and nurture talents.

Pupils engage passionately in local charity work, raising money and giving their time by, for example, providing community foodbanks. Pupils have many opportunities to take on leadership roles, including being a prefect, member of the school council or a subject ambassador. Older pupils act as mentors for those in younger year groups.

What does the school do well and what does it need to do better?

The school's vision of 'Nurturing Today's Young People, Inspiring Tomorrow's Leaders' underpins all of its work. The curriculum is highly ambitious, which enables pupils to flourish in all areas. The proportion of pupils studying the full English Baccalaureate is extremely high.

The school is equally ambitious for pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), who have access to the same curriculum and achieve equally well.

Teachers are real specialists. They consistently demonstrate strong subject knowledge.

Teachers plan and sequence lessons precisely to ensure that pupils learn the intended curriculum and develop deep knowledge in all subjects. Pupils build new learning consistently well based on secure foundations. In each subject, pupils are encouraged to revisit and apply what they have learned in the most effective way.

This helps pupils to remember their learning and helps teachers to identify any misconceptions or gaps in knowledge, which they address promptly.

Pupils are highly motivated to do their very best. They value learning and take pride in their work.

The extremely positive behaviour and attitudes of pupils ensure their full engagement in lessons. They use curriculum time extremely well and strive to make exceptional progress.

The school places great emphasis on the importance of reading.

It identifies pupils who need additional support with reading swiftly. Staff put in place a bespoke reading programme. This ensures that pupils make rapid improvements in their confidence and fluency in reading.

The curriculum incorporates a strong drive to expand pupils' vocabulary and oracy skills. Pupils produce complex pieces of extended writing on a diverse range of subject matters. Reading forms part of the pupils' regular morning routine in registration time.

The school library is a hive of activity, with pupils eagerly participating in the 'Star Readers Challenge'.

The school has a comprehensive personal development programme. Staff develop pupils' understanding of important topics in an age-appropriate way.

Pupils study a range of topics, including British values, online safety and healthy relationships. They express their views in a highly articulate manner. Pupils show respect to each other and to their teachers.

They speak immensely positively about the care and support that they are given by all the staff at school.

All pupils access high-quality careers advice and guidance. The school welcomes a range of external speakers from universities, local schools and a variety of employers, including those who offer apprenticeships.

The use of alumni, who are keen to return to their school to offer support and guidance to current pupils, is a strength of the careers programme. Pupils are very well prepared for their next steps.

Governance is very strong.

The board of trustees and governors hold leaders to account effectively and provide helpful support in equal measure. School leaders prioritise high- quality staff training and staff well-being. They ensure that staff workload is manageable.

Staff are proud to work here.


The arrangements for safeguarding are effective.


When we have judged a school to be outstanding, we will then normally go into the school about once every four years to confirm that the school remains outstanding.

This is called an ungraded inspection, and it is carried out under section 8 of the Education Act 2005. We do not give graded judgements on an ungraded inspection. However, if we find evidence that a school would now receive a higher or lower grade, then the next inspection will be a graded inspection, which is carried out under section 5 of the Act.

Usually this is within one to two years of the date of the ungraded inspection. If we have serious concerns about safeguarding, behaviour or the quality of education, we will deem the ungraded inspection a graded inspection immediately.

This is the first ungraded inspection since we judged the school to be outstanding in May 2018.
