October 2018 - This school continues to be Good.
This was a Section 8 Inspection (a one day monitoring visit). The list below contains some highlights of our inspection report. We are proud of the achievements of our school and our students who perform at their very best; it is good to see that Ofsted recognised the strengths of our community.
- "Strong and effective leadership and...a committed staff team."
- "...successfully combining the school's long-standing caring and compassionate ethos with a greater focus on ensuring that pupils achieve in line with their capabilities."
- "A more aspirational culture."
- "Teachers and pupils have very positive relationships. As a result, pupils behave well in lessons."
- "Pupils demonstrate positive attitudes to learning and take pride in their work."
- " A strong culture of safeguarding exists in the school."
- "...current pupils are on track to achieve ambitious targets and make even better progress."

February 2015 - Anthony Gell is a Good school.
A Section 5 Inspection took place - comments in the report included the following:
- "Students’ behaviour is excellent. They are very diligent with their work, courteous and highly motivated to succeed."
"All groups of students make good progress and achieve well."
"There are very positive working relationships between students and teachers in all subjects and students’ willingness to work together on challenging tasks is often impressive."
