THE famous BRIT School has been downgraded from 'outstanding' to 'good' in its latest Ofsted report. The school is well-known for nurturing some of the biggest names in pop music such as Adele and the late Amy Winehouse. Ofsted were largely very positive about the Selhurst talent factory following an inspection in March. Inspectors praised the "outstanding" sixth form and the "very high" level of progress made by students on vocational courses. However, they said those pupils, particularly the most able, do not do well enough in some academic subjects. "In some, learning is held back because [students'] notes are occasionally disorganised and teachers' feedback does not help them to know how to improve their work," the report added. Despite a drop in the school's overall grade, it was still rated as 'outstanding' in behaviour and leadership. Ofsted also recognised the "rewarding careers" pupils enter, which "reflect the unique qualities of the BRIT School and its high reputation in the performing arts and technical professions".
