INSPECTORS have rated Avon Valley College as ‘good’ for the third time in a row.

Ofsted said students are making good, and often very good progress.

Teaching is good, and students behave well and have a good rapport with staff.

They feel safe at school and are offered strong pastoral care, so that those pupils who are supported by extra government funding do at least as well as their classmates.

Sixth form students are given a wide range of opportunities to suit their varied backgrounds and interests, and the quality of care leaves them well placed to take the next steps in education, training or the workplace.

The senior leaders are ambitious for the school and committed to getting the best possible outcomes for students.

Principal Mark Avoth said: “I am extremely pleased. The new inspection regime is significantly more rigorous, and I am immensely proud of the whole college community. We will use this as a foundation to improve even further.”

Mr Avoth thanked parents and carers who provided feedback to the inspectors, and the students, staff and governors “who made sure their pride in our school was very much in evidence during the inspection”.
