We are an Ofsted Good School

We are an Ofsted Good School

The Hathershaw College was visited by Ofsted on Tuesday 30th November and Wednesday 1st December 2021 and we are incredibly pleased that Inspectors recognised the excellent work that is taking place in the school. They rightly determined that we continue to be a good school.  The report comments very favourably on how proud students are to attend the college, with Inspectors noting that pupils enjoy coming to school and see it as a happy place to learn, where everybody gets on well together.  Inspectors also found that not only do pupils achieve well but that leaders are also highly ambitious for them. 

Mark Giles, Principal at the College, is delighted with Ofsted’s verdict. 

“Our success is the result of a continuous team effort.  Staff at all levels work incredibly hard in the best interest of pupils, helping to improve their life chances.  My vision is to ensure that Hathershaw becomes outstanding, not because of the accolade, but because of the lives that will be transformed on the journey.  Times have been difficult for young people as a result of the pandemic and I am so pleased that Inspectors have realised what we have collectively accomplished despite the recent disruption.  I would also like to thank the students and their parents for the part they continue to play as well as the support from the Pinnacle Learning Trust.”

 We are proud to be recognised once again and rightfully so as a good school provider. Further details on the report can be read here:
