ABBEY College, in Ramsey, is satisfactory and improving, according to inspectors from Ofsted. The school, a specialist technology college, was formed in September 2006 by merging Ailwyn School for pupils aged 11 to 14 and Ramsey Abbey, which included a sixth form. The report notes that the merger followed moderate achievement in the two predecessor schools and there have been improvements this year. It says most pupils are polite, friendly and well-behaved. They contribute to the community through charities, voluntary activity and school councils. However, it adds that achievement is graded satisfactory because pupils have not made up for earlier gaps in their learning. The report says teaching is satisfactory and improving.
