Great news from Ofsted!

After fantastic results this summer and seeing more students progress onto university, apprenticeships and employment, we are thrilled to have received Grade 2 (Good) from Ofsted!

” The large majority of students are very happy with the education they receive. Many say that college staff go beyond their expectations and provide extra help and support before, during and after lessons. They are especially positive about GCSE English and mathematics…Teachers understand what students are likely to do after college, and they help them to develop their study skills alongside relevant subject knowledge.”

” Leaders and managers have created a more aspirational culture in the college since the previous inspection. They have improved the curriculum so that students study coherent programmes. They have increased the expectations all staff have of what students can achieve. They have provided training that has enhanced teachers’ subject knowledge and their teaching skills. As a result, teachers now reflect on and share their practice, and revise their plans, methods and resources to improve the quality of their work. Most teachers now challenge students to reach their full potential. They focus more on what it is they are preparing students for, and they prepare them well.”
