Ofsted Good or better for a decade!
In the ever-evolving landscape of education, receiving recognition for excellence is a testament to the dedication and commitment of a learning institution. John Leggott College (JLC) recently welcomed the scrutiny of the Office for Standards in Education (Ofsted) between the 14th and 17th of November 2023, emerging with flying colors and an overall effectiveness rating of 'Good.'
This achievement is no small feat, especially when considering JLC's consistent track record of securing Ofsted Good or better ratings for the past decade. The commitment to excellence at JLC is not just a recent development but a sustained effort to provide high-quality education for all students.
One of the highlights of the inspection was the positive feedback regarding the student experience. Ofsted representatives took the time to engage with a variety of students across the campus and found that, "students enjoy learning at the college. Students are highly motivated and keen to build on their knowledge and skills." This feedback speaks volumes about the learning environment fostered at JLC, where education is not just a routine but a genuine source of enthusiasm and growth.
Another aspect that JLC takes immense pride in is the recognition of its diverse and inclusive community. Ofsted's report highlighted, "Students value working in an inclusive environment where they can be themselves without fear of judgment and where there is mutual respect and understanding of individuality and difference."
The 'Good' rating from Ofsted is a reflection of the collective efforts of the JLC community – from educators and staff to students and their families. It reinforces the college's commitment to providing not only a high standard of education but also an environment that nurtures personal development and celebrates diversity.
