Thorough Challenge Partners , the college is peer reviewed by a team of senior leaders from schools across the country.  After two vigorous days of observations across all subjects, our visitors identified excellent practice throughout all aspects of school life at Fullhurst.  View the full Challenge Partners review report.

Pupil Premium review April 2015 

It was clear from my visit that the progress of its disadvantaged students is a key priority for the school. The Senior Leadership Team is extremely committed to ensuring that its disadvantaged pupils receive quality-first teaching across all subjects supported by effective interventions and access to as wide a range of opportunities as possible. The school has an extremely good awareness of its students and their specific needs and has implemented an impressive range of interventions to target Maths and English skills in particular and to widen opportunity accordingly. These interventions are monitored very effectively, enabling the school to anticipate where they may need to intervene to have further impact on pupil learning. This work has already seen gaps close rapidly. The focus on high quality first teaching is reducing the need for additional interventions and indicates the sustainability of ongoing improvements in the outcomes of those pupils eligible for Pupil Premium. David Deacon Executive Summary April 2015

College surveys

As part of our ongoing self-evaluation, the college regularly seeks the views of others. As such we take part in surveys carried out by a nationally recognised organisation, Kirkland Rowell, which not only gathers information about the college from parents and students, but allows these results to be compared to other schools and colleges in England. Below are links to our most recent parental, staff and student surveys.

We are extremely pleased to report that 119 staff completed our most recent questionnaire with 95.8% of staff rating the performance of the school as 'good' or 'very good'.
