Myerscough College ups Ofsted rating to 'good'

Myerscough College has been rated as ‘good’ overall after its latest Ofsted inspection.

In the last inspection, in 2010, the college was rated as ‘satisfactory’ in its overall effectiveness.

Horticulture, Sportsturf, Arboriculture and Apprenticeships (work based learning) were assessed as good with strengths in student experience, support, employability skills and teaching from vocationally experienced staff.

Chief executive and principal of Myerscough College Ann Turner said: "I’m thoroughly delighted with the results of the inspection.

"Ofsted’s inspectors acknowledged the significant journey that Myerscough has been on since 2010.

"Back then, our capacity to improve was graded inadequate, but the whole Myerscough team have worked together to drive forward the necessary improvements and now that improvement has been acknowledged.

"As well an incredibly well deserved result for our agriculture and countryside team, general student academic performance, student support, data management and enrichment have all come out as strengths.

"The steps to outstanding are clear. We know the areas that we need to work on further and the journey to get there continues."
