Tendring Technology College hailed outstanding by Ofsted
6:00pm Thursday 17th October 2013 in News
TENDRING Technology College has been handed the ultimate accolade with a glowing report from watchdogs.
The secondary school, which is split across sites in Thorpe and Frinton, was hailed as outstanding in every category after an Ofsted inspection.
Five inspectors from the education watchdog visited the school for two days at the end of September.
And they were impressed with what they saw, awarding the college the very top grades available.
It was assessed in pupil achievement, quality of teaching, pupil safety and behaviour and school leadership, and the school was hailed as outstanding in each category.
Principal Caroline Haynes said: “When we got the results through we were all absolutely delighted.
“It is a massive achievement and I am so pleased for everyone connected to the school. It is a very proud day."
Tendring Technology College became an academy over the summer of 2011 and was last inspected in September 2011.
Last time around it was rated as ‘good’, but has now made the major step up to the top of the Ofsted ratings table.
