Outstanding Education

Your education and your future couldn’t be in better hands when you choose to study with Callywith College.

We are officially recognised as one of the best colleges in the country and Ofsted has awarded Callywith College ‘Outstanding’ status as a result of its inspection in January 2020.

Just some of the comments from Ofsted Inspectors include:

  • Students are overwhelmingly positive about all aspects of college life. They feel privileged to be a student at Callywith and take an immense pride in being part of the College community.
  • A thriving supportive community and inclusive culture where students are constantly reminded of their ability and worth by staff. Students feel very safe and valued.
  • Students are inspired to do well because staff treat them with great respect.
  • Students, including those from disadvantaged backgrounds, make significant progress in developing their personal and social skills.
  • Students who join the college stay on their programmes. They go on to make good or outstanding progress towards their curriculum and personal goals and achieve their qualifications.
  • Callywith provides a wide range of carefully designed academic and vocational learning programmes and high-quality teaching, assessment and support.
  • Teachers have a passion for the subjects they teach. They have excellent subject knowledge and vocational experience.
  • Since the opening of Callywith College in September 2017, leaders, managers and staff have worked tirelessly to create a culture of high expectations for all.
  • Callywith has a highly inclusive nature with highly-effective additional support from staff and a range of external agencies which help students with SEND and high needs and from disadvantaged backgrounds to continue with their studies, become more independent and make progress in line with their peers.
  • Governors, leaders and managers have a clear and ambitious vision for the college. They have developed a curriculum which raises the aspirations and achievements of its students and improves the life chances of young people living in one of the poorest regions in the UK.
