School Description

Octavia House Schools was registered in 2012 and is registered with the Department for Education (DfE) to admit a maximum of 100 boys and girls between the ages of five and 16 years. Most pupils are boys. All pupils have an education, health and care plan for social, emotional and mental health needs. All pupils have been excluded from previous schools and, once admitted to the school, usually stay until the end of key stage 4.

The school does not use supply staff. At the time of the first standard inspection, in 2013, the school was registered to admit a maximum of 32 pupils between the ages of five and 11 years of age on the Vauxhall site. There were 18 pupils on roll. The proprietor was a single individual. At the 2013 inspection, all aspects of the school’s work were judged good and all of the independent school standards were met. Following two material change inspections, in July and August 2014, the DfE agreed to a change in registration for a maximum of 77 pupils between the ages of five and 14 years, with an additional site at Walworth. Following a third material change inspection, in June 2016, the DfE agreed to a change in registration for a maximum of 100 pupils between the ages of five and 16 years, with an additional site in Kennington. The DfE has recently agreed to a change in the proprietorial arrangements. The school now has a proprietorial body, a limited company with three proprietors. Governance is delegated to a governing body. One of the proprietors is the chair of the governing body. There are three other governors.
