Ofsted Full Report - June 2016

Corelli College Co-operative Academy underwent a full Ofsted inspection 10th-11th May 2016.  Further down this page you can view the final published Report in its entirety.

Here are some selected extracts from the published Report…


16-19 Study Programmes

“Teaching is good because it challenges students effectively and results in good outcomes”

“Teachers have high expectations and a strong commitment to raising students’ aspirations. Students agree that their teachers are aspirational for them. They especially welcome the very positive atmosphere in the sixth form which they describe as calm and friendly with a sense of purpose.”

 “Teachers ask questions that stretch each student’s thinking and students are encouraged to use appropriate language to explain their ideas. These factors, and the range of activities in lessons, ensure that students are confident learners who are engaged in their learning and who make good progress.”


Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare

“The school’s work to promote pupils’ personal development and welfare is good”

“The college’s open and tolerant culture promotes its values of democracy, solidarity, equity, equality, self-help and self-responsibility effectively. Learning communities, each named after one of these values, reinforce this commitment and encourage pupils to show respect and tolerance towards others. This fosters a strong climate of mutual trust and understanding”

“Pupils are very proud of the college’s diverse community and say it is one of its strengths”



“The behaviour of pupils is good”

“Pupils, staff and parents agree that there is a focus on ensuring high expectations of behaviour”

“Pupils are enthusiastic learners who are eager to achieve well. They are absorbed in their learning and keen to answer, and ask, questions.  As a result, behaviour is good”


Effectiveness of leadership and management

“There is an absolute commitment for rapid improvement from all leaders and governors”

“The principal, with determined support from senior and middle leaders, has taken uncompromising action to improve the college”

“Parents’ views of the college are positive and the great majority of parents would recommend the college to others”
