You have ensured that learners continue to receive good-quality education. You provide excellent care, support and guidance which learners value. This contributes towards the good progress made by most learners. (2017)

A strong ethos of mutual respect is evident across the college in lessons and communal areas. Behaviour is very good in lessons. (2017)

Teachers and support staff know their learners well and are quick to respond if they identify any learners at risk of not being successful on their course. As a result, the large majority of learners complete their course and are prepared well for their next step into further study or employment. (2017)
