A VILLAGE college is targeting outstanding status after being rated “good” by inspectors.
Ofsted visited Bassingbourn Village College in February and the inspectors’ report showed the college had achieved a “good” rating in all five of the categories assessed.
Principal Duncan Cooper, said: “I am delighted that the hard work by staff and the positive attitude of our students have been recognised in this way. Since I joined the college I have been incredibly impressed by the dedication of staff and our students’ passion and maturity.
“We have had many opportunities this term to celebrate sporting success on a local and national stage and a group of our Year 11 students achieved excellent results in GCSE maths in January.
“Students have been involved in lots of different visits and activities, including a dance show, music concerts and visits to museums and the theatre.”
