What The Good Schools Guide says..
This is no sleepy rural backwater. The college consistently comes out as one of the top institutions nationally for value-added exam results and it was awarded outstanding in every area at its last Ofsted inspection. Students say that some find the size off-putting at first, but you get brilliant academic and extracurricular option choices and the college works hard to overcome …..

It regularly gains one of the highest A level points scores per entry of nearly 100 sixth form colleges nationally and was rated Outstanding by Ofsted in all aspects of its work.
