Following our recent Ofsted visit, we are making a number of changes. We had identified areas that needed improvements under the new Ofsted inspection framework before the visit and had already scheduled and begun to implement changes. However, not all of our improvement plans were underway when the inspection took place in February. The new campus and facilities are due to complete in September. We are confident that we can regain our ‘Outstanding’ accreditation. We want to reassure our students that we have listened to Ofsted and are working hard towards this goal.
