Ofsted say:

Sixth Form: "Teaching is good. Teachers show good subject knowledge when working with groups or individual students, involving them well in the discussion of new ideas. They use technical terms appropriately and ask challenging questions, explaining clearly the standards expected in good-quality examination answers. They plan and set work that builds well on students' previous learning. In many subjects, teachers give detailed feedback to students, who respond carefully to the comments."
