Staff and students at Budmouth College are celebrating their second outstanding Ofsted report in a row.
Budmouth was given top marks in all areas - including the achievement of pupils and its quality of teaching.
The College's Sixth form was graded as outstanding - with inspectors saying that both curricular and extra-curricular opportunities for students were inspirational.
Principal, David Akers told Wessex FM: "This is a wonderful report that reflects the huge amount of hard work and commitment put into our College community by staff, governors, students and parents. Budmouth is a College that will continue to strive for excellence and this report is a celebration of not only the successes we have achieved but also confirmation that our College is providing all of our students an outstanding educational experience and a huge range of opportunities. There has always been a focus on ensuring that the teaching at Budmouth is of the highest quality possible and I was delighted when Ofsted said that 'the teaching was not only outstanding but the lessons are carefully planned and orchestrated to enable all students to make rapid progress within an exceptionally calm and purposeful environment'.
