An Ofsted Report has praised a local college for an improvement in GCSE results and a better revised curriculum.

Bethnal Green Technology College was recently inspected and its overall performance was judged to be satisfactory. The College received a poor report in its previous review and had hoped to increase its rating.

The report recognised the 11 per cent rise in the number of students achieving 5 or more higher level grades at GCSE including English and Maths as result of targeted individual support provided by the college.

“I am pleased with the progress that the school has made over the last 3 years. The significant rise in our GCSE results shows our rate of improvement as a school to be higher than national trends,” said Headteacher Mark Keary.

Asha, a student at the College said: “I have received tremendous support here and I hope it continues the same way. The lessons and the place have boosted my confidence.”

Inspectors praised the “relentless energy and drive of the Headteacher” and observed some ‘good’ and ‘outstanding’ lessons.

Councillor Abdul Asad, Lead Member for Children, Schools and Families, said: “I know they will continue to work hard to build on these improvements and deliver a great school for local young people and their families.”
