Camden’s only academy school has been praised for “putting right its problems” after being ordered to improve by inspectors earlier this year.
Ofsted had criticised the quality of teaching, progress of pupils and disappointing exam results at UCL Academy in Adelaide Road, Swiss Cottage, following its first inspection in May.
However, inspector Debbie Clinton wrote that the secondary is taking “swift, incisive action” to improve in a follow-up report published on Monday.
She said: “The significant improvement in the academy’s 2014 A-level results is promising.
“The academy has quickly put right the problems experienced by sixth-form students in 2013.”

“We were very disappointed when the report came out in May because I knew that the work we were doing was of a much greater quality than was reflected, and I think our confidence has been validated.”
