Latest Ofsted Report March 2020
We welcomed a visit from Ofsted on the 3rd to the 5th of March 2020.
What Ofsted said:
"The curriculum is increasingly ambitious Leaders aim to make it relevant and meaningful for pupils Pupils study a wide range of academic and vocational subjects Their exact curriculum is determined by their specific needs and progress."
"Leaders make good use of external providers where needed. Pupils take a wide range of qualifications"
"Recently, leaders have introduced more GCSE options . This is in order to increase academic opportunities and ambition for
pupils. Examinations and qualifications are not seen as an end in themselves. Rather, they are vehicles by which staff can help to facilitate pupils personal, social and emotional development. This is increasingly successful. The vast majority of
pupils successfully sustain the college placement or apprenticeship they move on to when they leave."
"Leaders have increased their endeavours to create a community of readers"
