King George V College is opening its doors to parents and students to update them on recent improvements, and provide information about the new multi-million pound Creative Arts Building.

Principal Adele Wills, the senior leadership team, governors and students will host an open evening on Monday, March 30, from 4.30pm to 7.30pm, at the college.

Adele said the event would cover improvements made since the disappointing Ofsted report last year, and her plans to continue these following its second monitoring visit.

“This is an opportunity for parents to come along and talk to me about the inspection and how we’re working to restore the college to be one of the best in the area,” she said.

“There will also be an exclusive first look at our new building – which will open later this year – and a chance for parents to speak to current students to get a glimpse of life here.”

Following a disappointing grade 4 at the end of last year, Ofsted has conducted a number of monitoring visits and declared the college is on the road to recovery.

“Inspectors recently praised significant levels of improvement in several key areas, and put their support behind our action plan. This is a great start, but we still have plenty of work to do to,” Adele said.

“My team and I will continue to strive to meet the targets we have set ourselves, and to ensure our students continue to get the best teaching and support possible.”

Free fish and chips will be available on the night, as well as a chance for prospective students to browse the courses the college offers, and apply for 2015 enrolment.
