Ofsted Said:

Churchill Community College is an OUTSTANDING provider of education to young people and prepares them extremely well for their future. '

' All groups of students make OUTSTANDING progress and leave Year 11 with GCSE results well above those found nationally.'

' Teachers have high expectations throughout the college and aspire for their students to do well
in everything they do; setting challenging targets and building strong relationships that allow
students to respond well. '

' The college is determined that its teachers are the very best in what they do and the depth and spread of professional development on offer to staff is extremely high. Teachers respond well to this and work hard to develop their skills. '

' Students are mature and confident learners because they know that staff want the best for them. They are confident about the skills and knowledge of teachers so that they are happy to engage and learn from them.'

' Students are extremely safe in the college and their behaviour is OUTSTANDING. Their attitudes to learning are very high. Students overwhelmingly say they feel safe and tell inspectors that bullying is rare and if it ever happens it is dealt with immediately.

' Governors and senior leaders set themselves extremely high standards. The breadth of experience
and skills of the governing body are wide and they challenge leaders well. '

' The headteacher, head of school, senior leaders and middle leaders all share the vision to provide the best for students and the desire to continue to drive improvement in the quality of teaching and student achievement.'
