Ofsted inspection

Because our three UK colleges are registered as independent schools with the UK Government Department for Education, they are subject to inspection by Ofsted.

Kings Oxford was inspected in April 2013, Kings Bournemouth was inspected in May 2013 and Kings London was inspected in November 2013. In all instances the reports were very positive.
