What does the provider need to do to improve further?
  • Ensure that governors, leaders and managers maintain their strong focus on developing teachers’ skills to ensure that the quality of provision is consistently high across all subjects.
  • Increase the proportion of AS-level learners who achieve and exceed their target grades by ensuring that:
    • more teachers use activities in lessons that are tailored to meet the different ability levels of learners
    • teachers check more carefully what learners have learned in lessons and help them fill any gaps in their understanding.
  • Increase the proportion of learners who achieve a grade C or above in GCSEs in English and mathematics at the first attempt by:
    • improving learners’ awareness of the importance of developing their skills in these subjects and raising their attendance at lessons
    • providing learners with work that is sufficiently demanding, especially those who are most-able, so that a higher proportion make progress relative to their prior attainment.
  • Develop further the study programmes for level 3 vocational and academic learners who do not apply for university so that they have a greater range of guidance and experiences, including work placements, to prepare them for employment.
