Robert Largan MP has welcomed the news that Hope Valley College has been rated Good in every category by Ofsted.
Hope Valley College was rated Inadequate in December 2017 after their inspection raised concerns with effectiveness of leadership and management, quality of teaching, personal development, and outcomes for pupils.
Following significant work by the leadership team, Robert Largan MP is pleased with the progress made to get the school back on track.
Hope Valley Pathways, the post-16 specialist SEND provision, also retains a ‘Good’ rating, as well as being described by students as being like “one big family”.
Commenting, Robert Largan MP said:
A huge well done to everyone at Hope Valley College, which has been rated ‘Good’ in every category by Ofsted.
It’s only a few years ago that Hope Valley College was found to be ‘Inadequate’ by Ofsted. This turnaround in performance is impressive and hugely welcome.
It’s great credit to the Principal, Mrs Gaynor Jones, and her team. Governors, the Academy Trust, pupils and parents have all played a vital role too.
I’ve always enjoyed visiting and supporting Hope Valley College where I can, including helping with their successful bid for capital funding a couple of years ago. I’m thrilled they’ve got this official recognition!
