We are incredibly proud of this endorsement from Ofsted and of many of the comments made throughout the report. It’s a testament to the hard work of both staff and students within the Trust over the past three years. Some of the highlights from the report include:

“Students make outstanding progress from their starting points; those from disadvantaged backgrounds make exceptional progress.”

“Students flourish in the purposeful and studious college environment. They display extremely good study habits and enjoy their learning.”

“Leaders have successfully realised their vision to create an academic sixth form that provides high-quality education and transforms young people’s lives.”

“Leaders and managers have created a positive culture in which learning and ambition flourish.”

“Students of all abilities are encouraged to excel and fulfil their potential.”

“Support staff have a range of excellent partnerships with external organisations that enable students to access the support they require to stay healthy and safe.”

“Staff provide exceptional support to students who live independently.”

“Teachers use their extensive subject knowledge and comprehensive knowledge of their students to plan and provide lessons and activities that enable almost all students to make excellent progress.”

“Leaders and managers ensure that personal development, behaviour and welfare have a very high priority at the college.”

“Students gain in confidence and develop excellent personal and social skills that will benefit them in their future lives.”

“Students are very well prepared in lessons, demonstrate exemplary behaviour and enjoy learning. They uphold the EHC10 standards of behaviour in social and study areas as well as in lessons, creating a harmonious, respectful and inclusive atmosphere that they value highly.”

“Students benefit from high-quality careers advice and guidance, and are extremely well prepared for their next steps.”

“The proportion of students progressing to university is high, with many progressing to prestigious institutions. A significant number have no previous family experience of higher education.”
