As the academy is a Church of England School, we are also subject to a SIAMS Inspection. SIAMS stands for Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools, and is a process that all Church of England schools go through, on a 5 year cycle. This is a rigorous process with many similarities to an Ofsted inspection, although with a tighter focus.

The current SIAMS inspection framework evaluates "How effective is the school's distinctive Christian vision, established and promoted by leadership at all levels, in enabling all pupils and adults to flourish?"

Our first inspection took place in June 2023 and we are delighted to have received an overall grade of Excellent

"The vision statement, together with the Christian values, underpins the strategic and operational life of the academy on all levels. Lived out through associated affirmations and ‘Bishop Character’, it has a transformational impact on adults and students."

"Difference and diversity, in all its forms, are joyfully celebrated. Students and staff are accepted for who they are and loved and welcomed into the Bishop Young Academy family."
