Ofsted visited in December 2015 and we were pleased that they recognised the concerted effort we are making to establish a high achieving aspirational culture within the College. We were also pleased that they recognised achievements in the Science area as this has improved significantly and teaching in the area is now good. The report also highlighted that the proportion of students who complete their qualifications successfully has risen and is high. Inspectors also commented that the College community as a whole is vibrant, harmonious and respectful of difference. Like all Colleges we know we have improvements to make but we also have much to be proud of and this gives us all confidence that Palmer’s is a very good place to study. We continue to be a warm, welcoming and friendly College that is fully committed to continuing to improve in all we do.
In 2015-2016 we achieved our best ever results and I hope we can do even better this year.
