Ofsted good practice example showing how John Masefield High gives access to a broad range of high-quality provision.



John Masefield High School and Sixth Form Centre faces particular challenges in enabling students who would benefit from alternative provision to gain vocational skills in a range of specialist settings. Yet, with the strong support of the local authority and the European Social Fund, its students have access to a broad range of high-quality provision which is having a positive impact on their motivation, attendance and qualifications.
