Stanmore College held a celebration last month to celebrate their Good Ofsted rating.
Coinciding with the end of term, the college held a party for the staff on July 29 to celebrate achieving a Good rating across eight areas following the inspection in April 2023.
Eleven inspectors closely examined the college. Inspection areas centred on the quality of education, behaviour and attitudes, personal development, leadership and management, education programmes for young people, adult learning programmes, apprenticeships, provision for learners with high needs, and overall effectiveness at previous inspection.
Speaking about the glowing report, Annette Cast, principal of Stanmore College, said: “Our governors and every member of staff should feel proud of the part they have played. To receive the external recognition of the determination and energy invested into providing high-quality education and meeting the needs of our community is fantastic.
“Feedback such as ‘learners develop confidence’, ‘have opportunities to develop interests and talents,’ ‘feel safe because of the calm and orderly environment’ and demonstrate ‘high levels of respectful behaviour towards their teachers and each other’ is a fantastic accolade and one that we are highly committed to.”
Inspectors also praised the college for the role played in ‘adapting subject curricula to meet the needs of the communities served’.
