A Catholic sixth form college in Greater Manchester has been awarded a second ‘outstanding’ rating by Ofsted, seven years after its first grade one.

St John Rigby RC Sixth Form College in Wigan received top marks across all areas of inspection following a visit in January.

The college previously received a grade one in 2017 and inspectors once again praised the provider for its quality of teaching and “highly motivated” students.

Seven inspectors visited the college between January 23 to 26. At the time of inspection, the college had enrolled 1,351 students, mostly studying level 3 programmes and a minority on level 2 vocational courses.
