A place to grow


As an Academy, sponsored by the Church of England, the College has two inspections. First a statutory inspection by Ofsted and secondly a Diocesan inspection examining the School's Religious Character.

The college was rated "Outstanding" by the National Society Inspectorate in November 2014.


Bacon’s College opened as a new school as part of United Learning on 1st March 2018. As a result we expect to receive a full Section 5 Ofsted inspection in our third year of opening.
