Amanda Spielman, Chief Inspector at Ofsted, and her colleagues visited Richard Huish College as part of their tour visiting education providers around the country.

The College which received an Outstanding rating in 2022 was pleased to welcome Ofsted back, this time not for an inspection but to provide a chance for the Chief Inspector to hear from and engage directly with leaders, staff and students about their work.

Following a campus tour, Amanda had lunch with students and staff where she enthusiastically listened to what they had to say about their experiences of education.

Somerset Live were also in attendance to interview Amanda and the students. The students spoke confidently about the many opportunities available to them at College during the Facebook Live interview.

The visit was concluded by welcoming some education leaders from the local area to join Huish for the afternoon.
