Well deserved OFSTED success

I read with interest your article on the recent OFSTED success of Whitby Community College.

At last they have had the recognition they deserve. Both my children have been through this school and have achieved to their very best potential.

My son is now at university and my daughter is completing her A level studies in the sixth form. Their school journey has, like most, had its ups and downs. Throughout their teenage years my children received an excellent education and an outstanding level of pastoral care.

This is our community college and we should be proud of it. There are always people ready to criticise but as a parent, I can assure you that the leadership of this school is outstanding and many of the teachers are willing to ‘go the extra mile’ to help. Well done to the staff and students for this well deserved result.
