Myerscough College has been rated as ‘good’ overall after the latest Ofsted inspection.

In the last inspection, in 2010, the college was rated as ‘satisfactory’ in their overall effectiveness.

Bosses say a lot of work has been done over the years to drive up standards. Their agricultural and environmental conservations course has been rated as ‘outstanding’ as part of the inspection.

Chief executive and principal of Myerscough College, Ann Turner, said: “I’m thoroughly delighted with the results of the inspection.

“Ofsted’s inspectors acknowledged the significant journey that Myerscough has been on since 2010. 

“Back then, our capacity to improve was graded inadequate, but the whole Myerscough team have worked together to drive forward the necessary improvements and now that improvement has been acknowledged.

“As well an incredibly well deserved result for our agriculture and countryside team, general student academic performance, student support, data management and enrichment have all come out as strengths. 

“The steps to outstanding are clear. We know the areas that we need to work on further and the journey to get there continues.”

The college was inspected last month and the findings have now been published. Other courses inspected were the horticulture, sports turf, arboriculture, animal care, motor sport, and veterinary nursing, which were assessed as good.
