LONG Stratton High School has been awarded a satisfactory grade by Ofsted following an inspection last month.
The official report claims that although teaching at the school is sometimes good and occasionally outstanding, the majority is only satisfactory.
'Many lessons have long periods dominated by teacher talk, with too few opportunities for students to think for themselves or discuss ideas with their neighbours,' it says.
The report also criticises the school's schemes for promoting disability, race and gender equality, which is says 'do not meet statutory requirements'.
