Barnfield College’s Nursery, which is situated on the grounds of the New Bedford Road campus, has been rated Outstanding second time in a row, after its Ofsted inspection last month. The report graded the quality and standards of the early year’s provision as outstanding across all areas.
Barnfield College has received an upgrade to ‘requires improvement’ in its latest Ofsted inspection, a year after its ‘inadequate’ rating which had no key strengths. The report highlights positive aspects as well as the improvements required to propel it into higher grading ground.
Barnfield College’s Students Services and the Apprenticeships team have been accredited with the matrix Standard – the nationally recognised quality mark, which assesses the advice and support services organisations provide to support individuals in their selection of career, study and life goals.
On Monday 2 November, representatives from the Royal Navy visited students on the College’s popular Public Services courses. The students took part in a variety of activities starting the day with a presentation about the Navy, roles available and that of a standard working day.
Graduates from Barnfield College’s Higher Education teaching courses collected their certificates at a stunning ceremony at Christ the Cornerstone Church, organised by the University of Bedfordshire on Friday 30 October 2015.
