AN Isle of Wight school has become one of the first in the country to undergo a new type of monitoring visit by watchdog Ofsted, yesterday (Thursday).
Medina College headteacher Nathan Thomas said: "As with all Ofsted inspections, I am not able to comment on any outcomes of the visit until I have received the final written letter from Ofsted.
"This really was an unannounced observation, the inspector called the school ten minutes before he arrived. Having been through the process I felt it was positive and will support Medina as we move quickly towards the 'good’ judgement staff, parents and students desire and deserve."
Medina was given a full inspection last March, when it was found to require improvement.
Ofsted said the inspection was not triggered by any concerns and Medina amongst the first of this type of inspection in the country.
