Ofsted has endorsed the achievement of Northampton College’s highest ever success rates, recording a judgement of ‘Good’ with outstanding features following its latest inspection.
The whole-college inspection, carried out by a team from Ofsted during the week of Monday, 29 October 2018, judges that teaching and learning are good, pass rates are high and that college resources are of a very high quality.
The report reveals special praise for the college’s High Needs provision, which is rated ‘outstanding’ – the highest possible grade. It states that High Needs students make exceptional progress with their independent living skills and with their achievement of qualifications.
Other highlights include:
The quality of teaching, learning and assessment is good. Most teaching enables students and apprentices to develop good standards of practical skills rapidly.
Ofsted inspectors find that students and apprentices feel safe at college, on work-experience placements and at work. They also comment that student behaviour is exemplary.
The report is an important document that will provide the foundation to ensure even greater progress in the future. Ofsted’s judgements have provided us with a clear agenda to follow on our continuing journey to excellence across the College.
