Ofsted Results

We are delighted to announce Sittingbourne Community College has achieved a ‘Good’ judgement from the December 2013 Ofsted inspection under the new school inspection framework. Here are some extracts:

  • The headteacher has implemented new policies and procedures. This is substantially improving the quality of teaching and so raising students’ achievement.
  • The quality of teaching is at least good and continuing to improve, with many examples of outstanding practice.
  • Students achieve well and the progress of different groups of learners is improving rapidly.
  • Students’ behave well in lessons and around school. Students are courteous to adults, welcoming to visitors and respectful of one another.
