Ofsted Inspection

We have high expectations of behaviour and standards of work – and are rarely disappointed by the response from students. Ofsted commented favourably in 2013-14 on the high expectations, the conduct and behaviour of students and their work ethic – which they judged to be outstanding.

“The college provides its students with education of outstanding quality. The comment that: ‘Penrice has nurtured my child and I cannot recommend this college enough’, is typical of many made by parents and carers. Under the excellent leadership of the Head Teacher, senior leaders and the governing body, there has been significant improvement since the last inspection. Attainment is high, and all students make excellent progress.”

“Warm, constructive relationships pervade classrooms. Students show a strong desire to learn and teachers have high expectations. Students demonstrate a great pride in their school. They are very polite, well-mannered and courteous towards each other and to adults and visitors.”

“Consistently high-quality teaching promotes excellent progress across the school. The variety and pace of activities are often breath-taking, keeping all students fully motivated and engaged”.

This is an outstanding school with outstanding opportunities for children to learn and develop.
