Academy manager Mark Smith has confirmed that the academy has retained its category 3 status, following an audit carried out towards the end of last year.
Smith, who travelled to London last week with director & company secretary Ashley Carson for a post-audit meeting, said: “It gives us an idea of what we’re short of and where we can actually put a bit more meat on the bones with some things.
“A lot of it was recommendations so it wasn’t actually action points which were going to cost us.
"The main objective was that we carried on with cat 3 status, which was achieved. Then we looked at ways that we can improve, which we are always trying to do."
