A COLLEGE has been praised by Ofsted after it received top marks in an inspection.

Chichester College has been named as one of the most best places of learning in the country following a recent inspection.

Just six other further education institutions in the country have been awarded an outstanding category, placing Chichester College in the UK’s top seven.

The college was graded outstanding across the board.

Principal Shelagh Legrave said: ‘It is a true testament to the fantastic staff of the college and a ringing endorsement of their commitment to provide exceptional support to our students.

‘The lead Ofsted inspector commented that the drive of staff to ensure students achieved their potential was so engrained in our culture, it could almost be touched.

‘Inspectors spoke to many students, employers, staff and other stakeholders during their visit and we would like to thank them for the huge amount of positive feedback they gave during the inspection.’
