WARRINGTON and Vale Royal College has been boosted after being named Good by Ofsted.

Its latest inspection report, which will be made public on Monday, observed the wide range of courses on offer which ensures students and apprentices of all ages are well prepared for further study, employment or promotion at work.

Areas of the inspection rated Good include leadership and management, quality of education, behaviour and attitudes and personal development.

Nichola Newton, principal and chief executive of Warrington and Vale Royal College, whose Warrington base is in Winwick Road, said: "I am very proud to be principal of this wonderful college and I am so pleased that Ofsted have recognised just how well we are serving the communities with whom we work.

"This is a huge achievement for our staff and students who have worked together at pace and with great focus and energy to succeed since the merger of Warrington Collegiate and Mid Cheshire College in Northwich and Winsford in 2017.

"To have achieved this excellent result and be described as ‘highly inclusive’ re-affirms my belief that we have become a college that the people of Warrington and Vale Royal can trust and justifiably be proud of.

"Quite simply, we believe in our students and we do the very best for them, inspiring them to achieve and this report is testimony to that."

The inspectors praised the college’s learning environment, student and tutor relationships, industry-standard equipment and excellent conduct from pupils.
