Outstanding in every way

No other college in the county has ever received so many high grades with no weaknesses identified.

The following comments sum up Ofsted’s stunning verdict:

At Runshaw, every learner really does matter… the learner experience and the quality of teaching and learning are at the heart of every aspect of the college… for many students, the exceptional support they receive has changed their lives… there is a very strong emphasis on developing the full potential of the students… and a sense of teacher and learner working together in the pursuit of excellence.
