    hello, i have applied to leyton sixth form college. according to the latest Ofsted report, the college was rated 'good'. but that worries me a lot since my school is pretty much corrupt in every way , but still has been rated 'good'. i have been hearing that the LSC often has behaivour problems where lessons are disrupted and the corridors are noisy.

    if you are currently a student there or you was a student there, is this true??

    good doesnt sound good. sounds like more a satisfactory tbh. I think there are two grades higher: excellent and outstanding :/. But at the end of the day what grade u get is down to u mate. i went to a pretty average state comp sixth form in my old highschool n got 4a's, so goes to how ucan do well if u put a bit of work in, regardles sof where u go

    I attended LSC from 2009-2011 and its pretty much fine to me. There were no behaviour problems with anyone. Occassionally there was a bit noise from hyper students after lunch times but that has always been sorted out by students themselves after they come back to sense! Overall, its been a great experience, one of my best actually. I miss it so much compared to uni!! Good luck :-D

    yh, i know its pretty much down to me - whether i work for my grades or not. but i just have the feeling that i might not like LSC. in my current school, the lower years (mostly the yr7s) are always running around, shouting & screaming. during break and lunch, the corridors are mostly noisy with typical behaviour problems occuring every now and then.

    just saying - the ofsted grades go from unsatisfactory, poor, good, excellent, outstanding in that order. so "good" is actually the "meh" grade.

    wow in never knew there was excellent. i thought it only goes up to oustanding. im quite surprised actually since woodhouse college, city and islington college and fortismere sixth form school have all been rated oustanding. as far as im aware, they are top ranked in london.

    in my school the upper and lower school were separate, and the sixthform people had their own building like, so didn't get problem of annoying immature kids running around causing chaos. I think u should do sixth form in your high school if they do your courses. You'll be familiar with people, teachers and building and can concentrate on the work instead of adapting to a new setting/routine

    Actually it is: unsatisfactory, requires improvement (or what used to be called satisfactory), good and outstanding (coming from a teacher).
