Macclesfield College top of the class in Cheshire and Warrington


Macclesfield College has been confirmed as the overall best-performing further education institution within the Cheshire and Warrington sub-region.

That’s according to the latest statistics published in the National Achievement Rate Tables. 

The college, officially rated as ‘good’ by Ofsted in November 2017, has been on a continuous path to improvement for over the past three years.

The latest National Achievement Rate Tables, released at the end of March, represent a high-water mark for Macclesfield College and will hopefully instil even greater confidence, and encouragement within its staff and senior management team.

Macclesfield College has a goal of becoming ‘outstanding’ in all aspects.

The Cheshire and Warrington sub-region is the north of England’s largest and most buoyant economy.

Macclesfield College has been confirmed as the best-performing FE institution for ‘overall education and training’ across all age groups, as well as being the leader regionally in the 16-to-18 category.

Macclesfield College was also rated number one for ‘timely education and training’ across all age groups, including the key 16-to-18 and 19+ categories.

Principal and chief executive Rachel Kay commented: “The newly-published DfE National Achievement Rate Tables make for particularly satisfying reading for everyone connected with Macclesfield College. 

“We take our responsibilities as an FE, HE and skills training provider extremely seriously and, through our ongoing work, we give access to high quality learning to each and every student.

“This is complemented by a proven pathway to success, through our outstanding teaching and pedagogy.

Furthermore, we are continuing to change and transform lives throughout the community we serve, by being fully committed to our overarching mission of empowerment through learning.”
