Students and staff at Boston College Spalding have ended the term with good news from educational body Ofsted.

The college, whose campus is in the Red Lion Quarter, has been judged good in all areas after an inspection last month.

A report from Ofsted praised the college’s provision of courses, including hairdressing and beauty therapy, health and social care and construction provided in Spalding.

However, the report also said more work was needed to ensure that students made “sufficient progress in achieving their qualifications”.

College principal Amanda Mosek said: “I am absolutely delighted to have received such a fantastic Ofsted report and very proud of all the staff at Boston College.

“The report highlights our students’ good achievements and confirms that we are very effective at preparing young people for the world of work and university.

“I am also extremely pleased to see that the Ofsted inspectors recognised the important role the college plays in the local community and the strong culture of respect that exists here.

“This report will give parents and young people confidence that Boston College is the right choice for post-16 education.”

An extract from the report said: “Over the past three years, the proportion of learners on college and workplace courses that achieve their main qualifications has improved and it is now high.

“This improvement has taken place in most subjects and at all levels, although a small cohort of learners on A-level courses do not achieve as well as those on other courses.”

South Holland and the Deepings MP John Hayes said: “I am delighted that we have such a dynamic and vibrant college in our area and one that plays such a key role in our community.”
