Cadbury College has been awarded an overall "good" rating after a week-long inspection.

Inspectors, who visited the college in March, said staff create stimulating lessons and work hard to make sure that students do reach their potential.

Ofsted’s main findings included:

  • “Teaching and learning are good and teachers create stimulating lessons.”
  • “A high proportion of students progress from AS to A2, and from A Level into Higher Education.”
  • “Teachers match their teaching to students’ individual needs: the robust assessment of students’ requirements at the start of their courses helps teachers understand these needs.”
  • “Teachers set and assess student work frequently and provide detailed feedback that helps students make good progress.”
  • “Students benefit from one-to-one tutorials which are highly effective in promoting individual progress.”
  • “The College has a harmonious and welcoming environment and students speak very highly of the respect and friendliness found at the college.”

Jeremy Rogers, Principal, said: "I am delighted with the results of our recent Ofsted inspection. The inspectors recognised that we have been very clear about our priorities and that we have been determined and focused on achieving them. This is a great tribute to the hard work and commitment of all our staff. But special mention should also be made of our students who took every opportunity to tell the inspectors why they think Cadbury is such a great place to study!"
