What Ofsted said about the curriculum:

IMG_0162‘The curriculum is a real strength of the college. It is designed to meet the needs of students, ensure rapid progression for them, prepare them for the next phase in their education or training and it also ensures that they are prepared for life in modern Britain. It develops their basic skills as well as those they will rely on in the future, for example, working with others, problem solving, information and communication technology and their social skills. It provides excellent opportunities for academic and personal development. There are many additional opportunities for students to pursue their interests and develop new ones, as well as experience the cultures of other countries. December 2014
