Mount Carmel College has been rated as ‘good’ in the latest Government Ofsted Inspection Report and can be downloaded in a PDF format.



Main Findings

The Ofsted team highlighted the following positive things which gave us a 'good' rating:

  • Students make good progress. In 2013, the proportion of students who gained five or more GCSE grades A* to C, including English and mathematics, was above average
  • Results dipped in 2012. The school took decisive action and consequently there was a 22% rise in the number of students gaining five or more GCSE grades A* to C, including English and mathematics, the following year
  • Progress across the school is good for most groups of students, and it accelerates in Key Stage 4
  • Teaching is good, with some that is outstanding. Leaders have had a positive impact on improving the quality of teaching in all subjects
  • Students show a great deal of respect and care for each other. They mix well in this racially harmonious community. They feel safe and are polite and well mannered. Around the school their behaviour is thoughtful and friendly. They have very positive attitudes towards their learning and show great pride in their school.
  • Leadership is strong across the school. Senior leaders work well in partnership with middle leaders and the local authority. Governors are effective in holding leaders to account
