School Description: Bacon’s College is on a journey of rapid improvement. Since our Ofsted judgement in February 2017 there has been significant progress made against our targets. Year 11 and Sixth form Results in July 2017 demonstrated our capacity for improvement, systems and procedures within the school have been overhauled, recruitment has been highly successful and all issues around safeguarding have been fully addressed. Our first HMI monitoring visit in September 2017 confirms our progress. We now have a strong focus on teaching and learning with a robust CPD programme and clear vision. This is an exciting time to join us.The transfer of the school to United Learning is an overwhelmingly positive move for Bacon’s College. The expertise available from within the trust at senior level and also at subject specialist level is already having a substantial impact across the College.
