In March 2017, Her Majesty’s Inspectors graded Durham Sixth Form Centre as ‘Outstanding’ following a rigorous two-day inspection, during which they observed lessons, scrutinised our results, spoke to students and met with staff and leaders.

Not only did they judge Durham Sixth Form Centre as ‘Outstanding’ for ‘Overall Effectiveness’ but also ‘Outstanding’ for ‘Student Outcomes’; the ‘Quality of Teaching, Learning and Assessment’; ‘Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare’; and the ‘Effectiveness of Leadership and Management’.
