Ofsted Report

Success for all


Why does Ofsted
Inspect Schools?

Ofsted inspects schools to provide information to parents, to promote improvement and to hold schools to account for the public money they receive. School inspections are required by law. Ofsted provides an independent assessment of the quality and standards of education in schools, and checks whether pupils are achieving as much as they can.

Ofsted Inspection from November 2022

Honiton Community College was last inspected in November 2022. The College was judged to be Requires Improvement’ but is an improving school. Some of Ofsted’s key observation are shown below, as is a link to download the full report.


“The principal and his senior leadership team are determinedly improving the quality of education.”


“Teachers are able to focus on teaching the curriculum due to the effective leadership of behaviour.”


“Pupils, including students in the sixth form, value the support they receive from staff.”


“A higher than average proportion of pupils at the end of Year 11 move on to appropriate and sustained education, employment or training. This is also the case for those who leave post 16 after Year 13”


“Extensive sampling of pupils’ work and observations of learning show that progress for pupils currently in the school has improved and continues to improve”
