What Ofsted said about Thomas Knyvett College in December 2013:
"This is a good school. In the words of one student, "This school has improved massively". Students rightly recognise how much better the college has become in recent years."
"Students now make excellent progress in English and mathematics."
"Behaviour has improved since the last inspection. Students have a sense of pride in their college and feel well cared for."
Quality of teaching:
"Teaching is usually good, and there is some outstanding practice. Lessons are well-structured and carefully planned."
Quality of Leadership and Management
"Leadership in the college is outstanding. The executive, substantive and acting heads have a clear vision and command the respect and support of all staff. An uncompromising drive to raise standards in all areas has driven improvement in all aspects of its work, notably in teaching."
