BSix runs a system of Internal Quality reviews of departments. They mirror an Ofsted inspection and are led by an actual Ofsted inspector. The most recent department to be reviewed is Business & IT and the inspector concluded that it is a 'Good', grade 2 , department.

Students in the department are enthusiastic and make very good progress. Lessons are well-paced and develop understanding well. There is also good monitoring of progress in lessons and excellent reinforcement of learning through the use of key resources.

The Head of Business & IT Shehnaz Awan was thrilled with the result and thanked all the staff, and the inspector, for their positive approach to the process.

This result follows the same result for Health & Social Care. Both departments have the potential to become 'Outstanding' in the next twelve to eighteen months.
