Ofsted Report

Medina College was last inspected on 21st and 22nd January 2020. The team of inspectors, led by Yasmin Maskatiya HMI, determined that leadership and management is good and that the team has the vision and drive to ensure improvements within the school continue. Sixth form provision at The Island VI Form (inspected alongside Medina College) was also recognised as a strength and was judged to be firmly good. Although the overall judgement remains as Requires Improvement, the school is on its way to moving out of this category by the next inspection.

It is particularly pleasing that the inspection report acknowledges the hard work that has taken place and continues to take place at Medina. The report states “Leaders have set about implementing much-needed changes in the last two years. These have improved pupils’ attitudes towards learning as well as the quality of the curriculum. Leaders have also ensured that staff have the training to be effective. There is more to do, but a determined start has been made and the teams and plans are in place to make further improvements.”
