Our most recent OFSTED Inspection in 2017 identified key strengths: We have very good progression to higher education and employment because we provide high-quality careers guidance; behaviour is good; students are respectful of peers and teachers; teachers instil in students an enthusiasm for their subjects; students receive good support and develop good skills to prepare them for employment.
We have launched an Excellence Agenda to reinforce the good practice taking place in College and to address areas for development. We are constantly striving to fulfil our mission of becoming an outstanding centre for learning, providing outstanding outcomes for all of our students.
‘Students’ progression to higher education and employment, following their studies, is very good. The College is the best performing college in east London for student progression to positive destinations, and is in the top 10% of all schools, sixth forms and colleges in the UK. Sixty-seven per cent of 2015/6 leavers successfully progressed to higher education and 22% obtained full-time employment. The College maintains excellent links with its past students. The percentage of the College’s past students obtaining good honours degrees has been increasing year on year, and in 2015, 76% of the College’s past students completing their degrees achieved first and upper second class honours.’ - OFSTED 2017
