WHAT OFSTED SAID

Slide20

WHAT OFSTED SAID

Students’ achievement

in the

Sixth Form

has

improved significantly

and is now outstanding. The

courses

that students follow are

well matched to their needs

and their progress is

closely monitored

so that any sign of a student falling behind is identified quickly and

additional

support is

given swiftly

. This has resulted in improved examination results and an increase in the

number of

students gaining higher grades

.
