Three-in-a-row ‘outstanding’ result for Richard Huish College
RICHARD Huish College in Taunton is celebrating following an Ofsted inspection which has once again rated it with the highest possible inspection grade - ‘Outstanding’.
It achieved this in all of the four key judgements, recognising a consistently high quality of education and personal development.
This third successive top grade places Huish with only a handful of institutions nationally to have been an ‘outstanding’ provider of education for more than 20 years.
Throughout this period Huish has frequently been praised by inspectors for its commitment to continuous improvement, striving to enhance excellence and delivering an exceptional experience to all students.
This most recent report noted that the college has a vision to provide high quality education for all members of the community, based on a broad and holistic educational offer to its students.
The report said: “Teachers set high academic standards. In turn, learners set high standards for themselves. They meet these by studying hard and making the most of the excellent opportunities the college offers… The strong local reputation of this college is justified. Leaders and staff establish and promote a culture of respect and high aspirations.”
Ofsted added that the college “provides education, encouragement and a wide range of excellent additional activities to develop learners’ knowledge, character, articulacy and ambition”. As a result “learners develop their subject knowledge, a clearer understanding of their place in the local community and wider world, and pursue their interests and hobbies with enthusiasm.”
