The Ofsted Annual Report for the academic year 2001/02 has now been published.

The Chief Inspector of Schools, David Bell, has for the first time, identified a number of 'particularly successful colleges' who have had outstanding inspection reports and Truro College is included.

The Ofsted Inspection published in December 2001 was the first of its kind to be carried out in the South West of England.

More than 200 lectures were observed at Truro College, large numbers of staff, students and Governors were interviewed and a large quantity of data on the achievement of students was analysed.

Eight areas of the college were awarded the highest possible grade and classified as outstanding (Grade1) and five were classified as good (Grade 2).

No areas were found to be poor, unsatisfactory or satisfactory.

Jonathan Burnett, Principal of Truro College was delighted with the report.

"This is fantastic news, everyone at Truro College has been delighted with the excellent results from our Ofsted inspection but this recognition of being successful, is terrific. It is the perfect tenth anniversary present."

Truro College opened in September 1993, and has expanded its provision in all categories. Recruitment numbers have continued to grow and the college campus has expanded its accommodation.

The high standards that have earned the College a national reputation for excellent achievement have been maintained.

The college has been recognised as one of the first Beacon Colleges in the country as a result of the excellent inspection.

Truro College is also one of the first colleges in the country to be awarded Centre of Vocational Excellence (COVE) status.
