Ofsted & Performance Data
A full inspection of Luton Sixth Form College took place on 28th November to 1st December 2017. We are delighted to announce that Ofsted’s judgement is the College continues to be a good provider.
“I am so pleased with this inspection outcome as being consistently Ofsted good or outstanding for the last 30 years has meant that every student gets the best possible teaching and support to go on to university, apprenticeships or employment. We are the oldest sixth form college, one of the largest in the country and our track record of excellence speaks for itself. It truly reflects the real commitment and care of our talented staff team, college governors and our hard-working, impressive students.” Altaf Hussain – Principal & CEO.
Luton Sixth Form College is recognised as a college that prepares students for academic success and for exciting, diverse futures. Inspectors praised the value of our inclusive, rich curriculum, the quality of our teaching and learning and our exceptional student support. Ofsted were impressed by the quality of student work, their resilience and ambition.
Our specialist teachers, employer-led projects, industry mentors and extensive enrichment opportunities all enable our students to develop the expertise and skills they need to progress and thrive: “Teaching, learning and assessment are highly effective in enabling the large majority of students to develop their skills and knowledge and to make good progress.”
We know we aim to support every student as an individual so it was particularly pleasing that inspectors highlighted the excellent care and support provided by teachers, learning assistants and progress coaches. “Science students benefit from inspirational support from recent graduates of the college. This innovative development helps science students to improve…Students’ attendance is very high. They arrive promptly and ready to learn. Students respond quickly to instructions and participate fully in learning activities”
We have read the Ofsted report with care and will reflect on what we need to do to develop further. We are proud of what we have achieved since our last inspection and we are ready for the next challenge, as Ofsted says: “Leaders and managers analyse learners’ qualification outcomes very thoroughly. When they identify declining trends in achievement they take swift action to make improvements” We certainly do and our next goal is to be judged outstanding.
