We aim to equip all of our students with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in their chosen field.
2015/16 was a year of great progress for us. Though in June 2016 Ofsted judged that, overall, we ‘require improvement’ they also judged that our apprenticeship provision is ‘good’ and that our leadership and management is ‘good’ too – which we take as a sign that we’re doing the right things to improve our institution.
