Our Ofsted Results


Youth Works Community College is delighted to have been rated as a ‘Good’ school, with ‘Outstanding’ in Behaviours & Attitudes  at our Ofsted Inspection in December 2023

Some of the key findings reported by the Inspector include:

  • All parents and carers who responded to Ofsted Parent View did so positively. A parent summed up the view of many, commenting: ‘I am amazed by what the staff have enabled my child to achieve in such a short space of time: she now has hope for her future.’
  • Pupils enjoy learning in a safe and welcoming environment. They follow learning programmes designed specifically around their needs and interests. Pupils develop strong working relationships with staff. Staff are skilled at motivating pupils and keeping them focused on their learning
  • Staff skilfully help pupils make positive choices. Pupils respectfully collaborate with staff to establish clear boundaries. Pupils know that their opinions are valued. They learn to manage their emotions and feelings very successfully. Almost all pupils see marked improvements in their attendance and behaviour over time
  • Pupils are re-engaged with learning. Many pupils have clear plans for their next steps. Pupils are overwhelmingly positive about their experiences. They say that staff listen to them, care about them and give them the confidence to be successful. As one pupil said, ‘They get you here.’
