Successful Ofsted Inspection July 2019

Our much-anticipated Ofsted Inspection took place on 3rd & 4th July. We were judged to be “a good school” and our provision was rated “Good” in all areas inspected.

The Inspectors concluded that:

“Senior leadership is a strength of the school”, “Governance is now a strength of the school” and “The leadership of teaching, learning and assessment is highly effective…Teaching is now good.”

They also judged that “Pupils’ outcomes are good. They make good progress…”, “Leaders plan an effective curriculum for pupils” and “Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is a strength of the school. Pupils understand and value differences.”

In terms of the 6th Form they commented that “Teaching is effective across the academic and vocational courses” and “6th Form students benefit from the wide-ranging enrichment activities provided. They are prepared well to succeed, academically and socially, in their next steps.”

We are very pleased with this Report which provides an accurate reflection of standards of education at the College. The full Report is available here.
