“S6C gets the OfSTED stamp of approval”

The much awaited first OfSTED report for Salisbury 6th Form College was published today. The College achieved a ‘GOOD’ rating in all areas.

It was described as a

“remarkable achievement”

by Chair of Governors, Neil Owen. He went on to say that,

“The whole team behind S6C  has worked incredibly hard to turn the dream of creating a new Sixth Form College for Salisbury into reality. This judgement from OfSTED confirms what we already knew, that we have succeeded in creating a Sixth Form College that we can all be proud of. I look forward to seeing the College go from strength to strength over the coming years”.

S6C was set up to be a small, inclusive sixth form college with an ethos characterised by excellent pastoral support and academic rigour. The report commented that:

“Governors and college leaders have successfully created an ethos of tolerance, respect and high aspirations for learners”

“College leaders ensure learners treat each other fairly and respectfully and raise learners’ awareness of diversity well. They have quickly established a strong ethos in which learners respect each other; one learner said, ‘It’s a bit like a family’ and commented on the high levels of trust between learners.”

The report went on to say that:

“Learners are hard-working, punctual and attentive in lessons. They enjoy their time in college and turn up well-prepared for their lessons. Most learners improve their confidence well through developing their study and organisational skills. They develop high but realistic aspirations as a result of the good pastoral and academic support that their teachers provide. Most learners achieve high levels of attendance and punctuality.”

The report also complemented the building by saying that:

“The college provides functional, well-designed classrooms and social spaces that learners enjoy using. The college is characterised by a calm and productive ambience. The building is designed well to reduce noise, giving learners the chance to sit in open spaces to work and relax without disturbing each other.”

Principal, Simon Firth said,

“this judgement from OfSTED is an important milestone in the development of S6C. We can move forward with pride and purpose knowing that we’ve created a solid foundation for the future. I would like to thank our fantastic students and staff who have helped make S6C what it is. I look forward to taking S6C on the next stage our journey.”

For those students still interested in applying to S6C, it’s not too late. Apply now.
