The Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) is the body approved by the Department for Education for the purpose of inspecting schools belonging to the Independent Schools Council (ISC) Associations and reporting on compliance with independent school regulations. ISI inspections are also carried out under arrangements of the ISC Associations for the maintenance and improvement of the quality of their membership.
Highlights From our Recent ISI Report
Our most recent Focused Compliance and Educational Quality Inspection Report was carried out by ISI in February 2022. Here are some of the highlights from the Report:
“The quality of the pupils’ personal development is excellent. Pupils’ self-confidence and self-esteem develop well, supported by an atmosphere in which they know they are valued and respected. “
“Pupils’ knowledge and understanding across the curriculum develops as they move through the school supported by the warm encouragement and expectations of their teachers.”
“Pupils are clear that their core values are respect and kindness”
"Pupils are proud of their school and their attitudes help to create a supportive, respectful environment. They know that the school values and listens to their opinions."
“The pupils are naturally creative; their enjoyment of music is overt and they reach excellent standards in choirs and instrumental groups, encouraged by the school’s link with a professional orchestra. Artwork across the school is vibrant and imaginative.”
"Pupils say they are confident that staff know them well and that their excellent pastoral guidance will support them"
