OFSTED! The Musical



"I have been through two Ofsteds and this one I am ready to laugh at," says the headteacher arriving for a special performance of OFSTED! The Musical filmed for Teachers' TV.

OFSTED! The Musical, written and performed by drama students from Hull University, combines musical numbers, sketches and satire to depict the madder side of a school undergoing an inspection. The writer David Byrne was inspired to write the show after having experienced three inspections as a school pupil.

Key points:

  • Received rave reviews from the TES at the festival
  • Created such interest that Chris Woodhead went to see it
  • Comments from an invited audience of teachers, headteachers and a "mystery" inspector
