The College’s Transformation Plan has been agreed by the Local Governing Body and forms the strategic planning for a three year period. It is a full analysis of every aspect of the College’s work with respect to standards around teaching, behaviour, leadership and achievement.  It contains a detailed review of each of these aspects in order to prioritise the areas which require further improvement.  In the case of an Ofsted inspection it would also be used by the inspection team as our self-evaluation document.
