When St Clement Danes was inspected in December 2007 it was satisfactory. Pupils’ progress was uneven because teaching was not consistently good and there were weaknesses in leadership and management. Since then, the school has been transformed and it is now a good and rapidly improving school.This is one of 12 case studies about the schools featured in the report Getting to good’, published by Ofsted in September 2012.
