The group’s residential provision – which largely comprises of students who live on campus at Chichester College’s Woodlands Halls of Residence or within a homestay – came under the microscope in September, with inspectors visiting Chichester College.

Inspectors met students and staff and looked at the group’s care standards and residential provision.

“To achieve Outstanding for our care standards in a fifth successive inspection is nothing short of phenomenal and it is all down to our amazing team of staff, who regularly go above and beyond what’s expected of them to support our students right across the group.

“It is thanks to their hard work and dedication that we are able to offer our students such outstanding support and care across our colleges.

“In particular, I’d like to thank our accommodation team, managed by Denise Moon. They do such a brilliant job in caring for and supporting students who either live in our halls or in homestay accommodation.

“I truly believe the work they do, supported by many other teams across all areas of the group, reflects our ethos of ensuring our students are at the heart of all that we do.”
