Commenting, Mike said: “This really is a fantastic result. I have absolutely no doubt that the outstanding inspection grade was achieved through anything less than the hard work and dedication of the staff and students at the college. I wish to pass on my sincere congratulations for this literally outstanding report and Principal Chris Thompson deserves special recognition for his strong leadership.”

Cllr Andrew Wealls added: “Congratulations to both the staff and students at BHASVIC. High quality post-16 education is vitally important to the development and career prospects of today’s young adults, so these results really are something to be proud of. Well done.”
