Success on the South Coast

Chichester College has received an outstanding grade from Ofsted.

The 14,500-learner college, previously rated as good, achieved the top grading in all headline fields.

Inspectors praised staff for putting learners “at the heart of all college activity”.

The University of Sunderland also received a grade one result for its art and design foundation diploma provision in an Ofsted report, also published this month.
