THE headteacher of an Isle of Wight school has welcomed Ofsted's latest feedback.

In its latest Ofsted monitoring report, Cowes Enterprise College was said to be making reasonable progress towards the removal of special measures.

Inspectors highlighted new principal Rebecca Pearce's "high expectations" and "robust approach."

Ms Pearce said: "I am very pleased that the hard work of everyone at the college, and the support of governors and our parents, is being recognised.

"This is a very positive report and those involved in the school should feel rightly proud about the progress being made.

"There is still a great deal to do and we all remain deeply committed to addressing the issues raised in the report.

"However, inspectors recognise that we are already implementing systems to improve many of these areas and we will not stop until we reach our goal of becoming an outstanding college."

Professor Toby Salt CEO of Ormiston Academies Trust, which is due to take over the school in September, said: "Cowes Enterprise College the governors and Rebecca Pearce have done a very good job to get this feedback. 

"We have been working in close partnership with the College since September and we are looking forward to working with them as a member of the Ormiston network of academies in the next academic year."
