Patchway’s local councillors today congratulated Patchway Community College on its recent positive Ofsted report. The College has received a rating of 'Good' in all areas after becoming the first secondary school in South Gloucestershire to be judged under Osted’s new inspection regime. The removal of the 'adequate' category and the tougher standards used show that Patchway Community College’s staff and students are delivering an excellent and improving performance under the LEA.
Patchway Councillor Sam Scott, who is also a College Governor, comments:
“I am delighted that the Ofsted inspection has recognised the hard work put in by staff, students and the community into making Patchway Community College a superb school. These results show that Patchway Community College has been able deliver a 'good' performance in all areas and is an excellent choice of school for local parents.
The College has to work in a difficult physical environment and desperately needs investment in its buildings. It missed out on a rebuild when the Coalition government scrapped Labour’s Building Schools for the Future Program and had its bid rejected under the Coalition’s own much smaller Priority Schools Building Programme. Despite these continued setbacks, the College community has worked hard to get a good grading and deserves a lot of congratulations.”
