A SIXTH-FORM college is celebrating after being handed top marks in an official inspection.
Students at Huddersfield New College get outstanding guidance and support, a report out today says.
The verdict comes after Osted inspectors visited the college in October.
They sat in on 88 lessons - grading English and foreign languages classes as outstanding, together with performing arts and media.
Delighted college principal Philip Forrest said: "It is a real boost for the staff to have their hard work recognised by government inspectors.
"New College is a great place to work. We now have some excellent facilities, the students are fantastic and we take a real pride in their achievements."
Students quizzed by the inspectors mentioned just three things they disliked - unreliable bus services, overcrowding in the dining area and the quality of food.
Ofsted's official report said: "Tutors know their students well and students have a wide range of staff to whom they can turn for support with personal issues.
"The careers guidance and education programme is effective in raising the aspirations of students and supporting their many applications to employment, further education and higher education."
More than 1,600 students are enrolled at the college in New Hey Road, Salendine Nook.
