Runshaw has been Outstanding for over 25 years – OFSTED Best Practice visit

As an Outstanding college with Beacon status, we were recently asked by Ofsted if we could showcase our best practice strategies for teaching and learning.

Eight inspectors visited for a Best Practice visit to look at how we help our students achieve their fantastic results. They observed lessons, visited our student support departments, met with staff and students, and had presentations on our teaching and learning strategies. Click here for more!
