We're 'Outstanding'... and that's official
Weston College was rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted in 2014, following a rigorous inspection of every area of the education programme. We were the first General Further Education College in the West of England to achieve the top grade under Ofsted's stringent new Common Framework Inspection (CIF).
Ofsted inspectors praised the College's teaching and learning, stating that students "benefit greatly from the culture of respect, hard work and enjoyment that permeates the College."
