More House School, which teaches children with special educational needs and/or disabilities, has been rated outstanding by Ofsted for the fifth inspection in a row.

The highest rating for the school, in Moon Hill, Frensham, has been consistent in inspections going back to 2008.

The latest one, conducted in March this year, rates the independent boarding school outstanding in all categories.

The report says More House  ‘‘is a school where high ambitions underpin every aspect of day-to-day life.’’

It notes ‘‘pupils respond well to the challenges they are set because their needs are understood and the support they receive is highly effective.’’

Inspectors reported staff are skilled in managing pupils’ heightened anxieties and that one boy said he had ‘‘learned how to learn’’ because staff give him good strategies to cope.

The extra-curricular activities were described as  extremely rich in variety and high in quality with sport, technology, music and the arts highly valued.

The report highlighted the magic club, run by a professional magician and that pupils doing drama are hoping to register for the Edinburgh Fringe later this year. 

All the younger pupils are taught to play a musical instrument, with some going on to perform at a high standard.

‘‘The school has been rated outstanding for some time, yet has not stood still in its ambition to evolve and to improve,’’ the report states. It said the curriculum has great breadth and is strengthened by an excellent range of accommodation and teaching resources.

More than half the pupils who left sixth form last year went to universities and staff were described as highly dedicated specialists who understand the pupils’ emotional needs.

Parents’ comments included: ‘‘The school has been a life saver for my son.’’
