OFSTED, Awards, Accreditations and Performance Tables
At New College, we work hard to develop new and existing relationships with other educational organisations and to raise our own performance and aspirations in every respect.
New College was visited by a team of OFSTED Inspectors in November 2017, with the report published in December 2017. We were assessed as being GOOD. Read the full report.
