Inspection of us as a Church of England school was carried out in June 2016 with the following ‘outstanding’ summary judgment included in the final report:
"The distinctiveness and effectiveness of Steyning Grammar School as a Church of England school are outstanding. The school has a very clear focus on the well-being of all members of the school community based on Christian Values, with students playing a leading role in chaplaincy, acts of collective worship and leading the flourishing Christian Unions across the school. Students develop their moral conscience and contribute significantly to self-initiated charity fund-raising. Succession planning and leadership development programmes are well developed for both staff and students."
