Avon Valley Sixth Form was rated 'Good with Outstanding features' in our most recent Ofsted Report (2014). 

 OFSTED findings:

  • Teaching is usually good in most subjects because teachers have high expectations.
  • The principal’s good leadership is focusing all staff on raising achievement. Consequently, teachers plan tasks that encourage all students to work hard and motivate all to want to do well.
  • Senior leaders are ambitious for the school and are committed to securing the best possible outcomes for students.
  • Pastoral leadership is strong and inclusive care for all students ensures that those supported through additional government funding achieve at least as well as their peers.
  • Students in the sixth form benefit from a wide range of opportunities which meet their varied backgrounds and interests. The good quality of care ensures that they are well placed to take the next steps in their education, employment or training.
  • Students feel safe at school and good spiritual, moral, social and cultural development underpins good relationships between students and teachers and between students and their peers.

Ofsted is the 'Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. It inspects and regulates services that care for children and young people, and services providing education and skills for learners of all ages. 

Every week, it carries out hundreds of inspections and regulatory visits throughout England and publishes the results online. It helps schools that are not yet of good standard to improve, monitor their progress and share with them the best practice it finds from other schools.
