Winstanley College named 6th Form College of the year

WINSTANLEY College, won 6th Form College of the year 2017, at a glittering, black tie event hosted by comedian Rob Beckett on Friday night.

The judges from the TES (Times Education Supplement) felt that Winstanley College's "sheer range of good practice", and the extensive evidence that it was going above and beyond to support its local community, gave it the edge in this competitive category.

Winstanley College has been rated "outstanding" by Ofsted since 2000, with its most recent full inspection taking place in 2007. Standards have remained high, with impressive outcomes for students. More than 90% are highly satisfied with their experience at the college, and applications have increased by 28% since 2009. Students often progress to leading universities, with about 40% taking up places at Russell Group institutions every year, and an overall progression rate of 85%.

The college delivers access programmes for more than 150, 6th form students every year; for its own learners and those from nearby 6th forms. In partnership with local schools, it runs a programme for academically able students who might not otherwise aspire to further academic study. Winstanley College has also established a peer review and development group with other 6th form colleges to facilitate joint lesson observations, self-assessment and CPD. The partnership has supported all the colleges to achieve "good" or "outstanding" Ofsted ratings.

The judges said that Winstanley College was:- "extremely impressive and at the top of the category. Its range, impact and reach was very good."

Their victory was witnessed by over 600 people, gathered to celebrate the sector's achievements, at the prestigious awards ceremony held at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, London, on Friday, 24 February 2017.
