We are still Outstanding!

We’re delighted to announce that following our Ofsted inspection in November 2019 we continue to be ‘Outstanding’!

The college was graded ‘Outstanding’ in all four judgement areas. The report stated; “Since the previous inspection governors, leaders, managers and staff have maintained their exceptional standards to provide an outstanding experience for their students. They hold extremely high aspirations for students”.

The report went on to praise the curriculum, which is carefully designed and bespoke to individual students and ensures they are successful and independent in their lives after college. Students receive excellent support and a “high proportion….gain employment or move into voluntary work”. The report also acknowledged the “robust safeguarding processes in place to ensure that students are safe in and out of college”.

Kelly Phillips, college Principal, stated; “I am so proud of all our students and staff who have worked so hard to maintain an ‘Outstanding’ judgement. Our students truly deserve this and it represents the continued dedication of the entire college community.”

As a result of outstanding teaching, over time students make excellent progress and develop the knowledge and skills they need to achieve their goals.
