Jane Austen College opened in September 2014 and was first inspected by Ofsted in October 2016, in line with their guidelines for inspections of new free schools. The most recent, Section 8 inspection was performed in May 2022.
Inspectors found that the school shows
"enough evidence of improved performance to suggest that the school could be judged outstanding if we were to carry out a section 5 inspection now. The school’s next inspection will be a section 5 inspection."
