Education inspectors have praised Bexhill College’s provision for students.

David Martin, Ofsted inspector, said students continue to receive good quality education and training.

He said outcomes for learners remain good overall and when students join the college, they are quickly helped to improve and achieve. He also highlighted many students travel long distances to attend the college due to its high reputation.

Principal Karen Hucker said: “We are extremely pleased with the outcome of the inspection. This reflects the hard work and dedication of the staff to ensure our students achieve the best grades possible while with us. We are pleased that Ofsted has recognised the positive work we do along with our drive to continually improve.”

The college was inspected in October and was the first college in the south east to be inspected under the new two-day inspection process for ‘good’ post-16 colleges.

Ofsted looked at all aspects of the college’s provision during the inspection and highlighted how the college has ‘successfully placed students and local communities at the heart of its work’.

They noted students study on a ‘vibrant and well-resourced single campus’ where the college has successfully provided students with excellent accommodation, facilities and resources to support teaching and learning.

Inspectors found that students benefit from good teaching, learning and assessment.

The college is now recruiting for September 2016.
