St Vincent College Celebrates
‘Good News’ from Ofsted
Staff and students have been
celebrating the recognition of much
hard work by achieving a rating of
‘Good’ in all areas of its latest Ofsted
report.
Good leadership and management,
good outcomes for learners and
good quality of teaching with areas
of ‘outstanding’ are just some of the
headlines in the most positive Ofsted
report St Vincent College in Gosport
has received in recent years.
The inspection, which took place
at the start of the year, cited the
College as being ‘strongly focused
on successfully developing students
to achieve their best’ with a high
proportion of making good or better
progress in their studies and going on
to complete qualifications successfully.
‘I know I speak for
everyone at St Vincent
College when I say
how delighted and
proud we are with
such a positive
report that highlights
how our students
thrive and achieve
success in a variety
of A Levels and vocational courses,’ said
Matt Atkinson, Principal of St Vincent
College.
‘This report is the culmination of a great
deal of hard work and dedication to
improvement at the College and I am
so proud of what the staff and students
2
here have all achieved. With our teaching
being declared ‘good’ with ‘outstanding’
areas, the whole report paints a picture
of confident students participating in
lively lessons provided by skilled teachers
setting high standards and expectations.’
Ofsted inspectors praised the
College for creating a safe, respectful
environment for its students and
providing effective careers guidance
for successful progression to higher
education or employment.
With this new step up in its provision,
St Vincent College now takes pride of
place amongst neighbouring colleges
and schools in the region who have
the same grading.

‘As a Student Ambassador,
I was part of the team
that welcomed the Ofsted
inspectors, so I knew it
was important. St Vincent
College is the closest college to
where I live and I like the fact that it is warm,
friendly and there is a good mix of people
here. I am pleased we are now seen as a ‘good
college’ – I think it’s great for everyone.’
Elliot Beeby, 18, studying Business, Law
and Criminology BTECs with an A Level in

‘I am thrilled that Ofsted has judged
St Vincent College as ‘good with
outstanding features’ and believe
it reflects a whole new culture
throughout the College where all
our staff are dedicated to supporting
each and every student in achieving their very best.’
Sarat Jones, Assistant Principal
‘My Mum wanted me to come to
St Vincent College to get the full
college experience like she did.
I knew she really enjoyed it, so I
wasn’t worried about what other
people said, but I am pleased the
College has been recognised as ‘good’. I think it
makes everyone feel more positive.’

‘I live north of Fareham and didn’t
like the environment of any of the
colleges I visited until I came to
St Vincent College. Everyone was
so friendly and nice that I knew this
was the place for me to make a fresh
start and begin a new chapter. The Ofsted grading
never bothered me before, but I am really pleased we
are now called a ‘good’ college, because that really is
what it is like here.’
Robyn Davies, 16, studying Philosophy, Psychology and
Sociology A-Levels and a Diploma in Health & Social Care.
‘I recently moved into the area and came from
a school that was also ‘in need of improvement’
according to Ofsted, so the grading of St Vincent
College at the time I was looking didn’t bother me. I
knew that education depends on what you make of it.
I looked at other places, but found them too formal.
I felt I was ready to study at a place that respected
individuality and gave students independence and
personal responsibility and this is what I found
at St Vincent College. Of course, the new ‘good’
grading is great news and I feel it is a more accurate
representation of my experience here.’
Lucy Austin, 17, studying Communication & Culture,
English, Philosophy and Psychology A Levels
‘The Ofsted report represents all
the hard work that has been going
on within the curriculum, pastoral
care and the close relationship
between the two in order to put
individual students at the heart of
everything we do. I knew we were good, but this
result gives comfort and security to the hearts and
minds of everyone connected and involved with
St Vincent College.’

Careers Update...
Careers Team
Celebrate
Double Success
Careers guidance was identified as a
key strength during the recent Ofsted
inspection with the inspection team
commenting that: ‘Careers advice
and guidance are effective in enabling
students to make the right choices.’
They also stated: ‘Students benefit
from high-quality careers advice and
guidance, and a good proportion
progress from the College to
university or higher-level study.’
Less than two weeks after the Ofsted
inspection the Careers team were
once again subject to an external
inspection on their work, this time
from Assessors from the Matrix
Standard, a national Quality Mark
awarded to organisations meeting
rigid assessment criteria in the
delivery of Information, Advice &
Guidance.
Staff, students and external partners
were interviewed over two days and
the team were delighted with the
outcome. Assessors identified 12
areas of strength, double what was
achieved in the inspection three years
Hard Work

Statements

Having to write a 47 line statement on
why a university should choose you
has often been cited as the ‘worse
thing’ about the application process by
students. For some after a couple of
drafts it’s done but for others it can
take seven or more drafts before they
are confident they have produced the
best statement they can.
For many competitive courses the
personal statement forms an integral
part of the assessment process
and feedback can highlight one of

previously and a personal record for
Alistair Lambon the Careers & HE
Manager, who has been involved in
five Matrix inspections over the years.
Alistair said: ‘It’s been a busy fortnight
with having two inspections in two
weeks but I could not be more pleased
with both results. Both inspections
highlighted the importance that providing
outstanding careers guidance is pivotal
in supporting student progression in
whatever next step they take’.
Assistant Principal Andy Grant said:
‘Alistair and his team should be rightly
proud of this double success. The College
has a reputation for being a lead in
Careers Guidance provision within the
County and this has been confirmed by
these excellent results.’
the reasons for rejection was the
personal statement not being strong
enough. The College UCAS Tutor
Team spend a great deal of time with
their students supporting them on
this main part of the application form.
The College has a successful record
of ensuring students get the offers
they need and this year has been no
exception. Careers & HE Manager,
Alistair Lambon explains: ‘One of the
things I monitor at this point in the cycle
is the number of students who have
failed to receive any offers and as such
become eligible for UCAS Extra. We are
really pleased that this figure is only two
and is evidence that students are making
strong applications attracting interest
from their choices. We look forward to
these offers being confirmed following
results day.’

The Psychology, Health and Care, and
Science Departments at St Vincent
Sixth Form College once again
stepped in to the world of crime
this week when they ran the annual
Murder Mystery evening. It was an
evening of intrigue and deception
with some of the finest minds from
the local Fareham, Gosport and
Portsmouth schools taking up the
challenge to solve the crime.
Students were taught a range of
skills that included criminal profiling,
crime scene analysis and forensic
skills in order to be prepared for
the tantalising details that were left
behind by the criminal mastermind.
The students worked diligently during

The time came for each of the teams

However, finally the perpetrator to

In a surprise twist to events it was
revealed that undercover CID were
already working at the scene and so
a swift arrest and effective resolution
was achieved to the evening.

Taster of IT and Media
for Brune Park Students
A visit by a very enthusiastic group
of Year 9 students from Brune
Park School to our IT and Media
Departments proved a great success
and one which we hope to repeat
many times in the future with Brune
Park and other local schools.
The first half of the day was spent
within the IT Department learning
Macromedia Flash© where
the students learnt how
to create interactive
animations using
tweening methods
and behaviours.
Many thanks to the four Year 2
students from IT: Jenna Akehurst,
Jack Palmer, Sophie Metcalfe and
James Morrissey who were great
ambassadors for the subject, helping
the students get the most from their
taster sessions.
Kieron Duffield were on hand to
provide help to edit the material.
After lunch the students joined
the Media Department working in
small groups to film material for a
music video inspired by the White
Stripes video “The Hardest Button
to Button”, which uses jump cut
techniques to create an effect similar
to stop motion animation.
In the words of their teacher, Mr
Martin Barratt, Subject Leader for
ICT & Computing at Brune Park: ‘The
students found the experience rewarding,
inspiring and engaging. I think it will help
to motivate them during Key Stage 4 as
they have a better understanding of what
could lie beyond.’
Media teacher Rob Hind said: ‘All the
Brune Park students were really engaged
in the task and very creative with their
use of the camera. It’s fantastic that they
managed to create a full 3-minute music
video by the end of the day.’

Sport and Public Services Airsofting Trip 2016
The Sport and Public Services
students recently competed in their
annual combat event. Outdoor and
adventurous activities are a large
part of both the Sport and Public
Services BTEC courses. This year, the
department decided to try Airsofting,
instead of the usual Paintballing.
Although it was a wet and windy day
the students and staff thoroughly
enjoyed themselves. They spent the
day competing in a range of different
scenarios including “King of the Fort”.
The eventual overall winners were
the Year 2 group. Well done to all
those who took part.
National
Citizen
Service
The National Citizen Service (NCS)
is a flagship government initiative
that offers a unique opportunity for
students aged 16 and 17. As one of
the biggest events held at St Vincent
Sixth Form College, our students will
come together, once in their lives to
learn, develop and act as one in their
communities. As part of this event
the students involved will have the
amazing experience of working as a
team and to show their potential to
make an impact in the world and their
local community.
80 Sport, Public Services and Health
and Social Care students travelled
to Croyde in North Devon with
three PE staff for their NCS trip. The
students stayed at the Ultimate High
Adventure Centre in either log cabins
or large tents, which for some of our
students was the first time they had
10
ever gone camping or lived away from
home.
Each day consisted of two activities
and included surfing, coasteering,
mountain boarding laser quest,
high ropes and total wipeout. The
activities were fully engaging and
helped the students to develop their
confidence as well as communication,
leadership and teamwork skills.
After the three days spent at Croyde,
all the students and staff travelled to
Norman Court School in Salisbury.
Students took part in a range of
activities tailored to their relevant
subjects at College, as well as working
with the local community.
On returning to College each
department worked on the planning
and delivery of a community project.
This involved the students working
as a team to raise money for a local
charity or organisation as well as
doing some voluntary hours.
After the charitable events have
taken place our students are

the community. The transformation
we see in young people through

It provides young people with the
tools, skills and belief to unlock their
potential and make a positive impact
in their communities, whatever their
background and whatever their
ambition.
