Outstanding For Sport

Our department was given the grade of ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted in our most recent inspection.

These are the results of the first inspection by the Office for Standards in Education (Ofsted) since Filton College merged with Stroud College in February 2012 to become South Gloucestershire and Stroud College.

 

There were ‘Outstanding‘ grades given in Sport, Performing and Visual Arts and Business.

 

In addition, Ofsted judged that the college had ‘Outstanding’ leadership and management, learner support services and employability programmes.

 

The report also outlined that a significant and increasing proportion of the teaching and learning was outstanding and that learners were receiving outstanding support in their studies, while also benefitting from SGS College’s culture of high expectations.
