Inspection reports

The Independent Schools Inspectorate is a Government approved inspectorate responsible for the inspection of Association independent schools. Schools in the Associations are ranked among the best in the world and educate more than half a million children in 1,200 schools.

ISI Inspectorate Report February 2017

The school has met all the standards and has been judged to be fully compliant within all areas.

Our Inspection Report can be downloaded below but I felt it important that I provide you with some context of what a Compliance Inspection entails. A Compliance Inspection is not qualitative so is not graded as excellent, satisfactory or needs improvement. To be deemed compliant the school must achieve a standard of good within all areas so the only qualitative word you will read is ‘good’. A Compliance Inspection is very much a health check for the school and informs parents that the school is meeting all the required standards.

The school was judged against over 500 regulatory standards under the umbrella of the 8 main areas which were as follows:

Quality of education provided
Spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils
Welfare, health and safety of the pupils
Suitability of staff, supply staff and proprietors
Premises of and accommodation at schools
Provision of information
Manner in which complaints are handled
Quality of leadership in and management of schools.

The school has been deemed fully compliant within all areas of the regulatory standards above.

The Compliance Inspection Report is not a lengthy document so I would encourage you to read it in full. Although the report is not qualitative, I hope it serves to reinforce that the school is performing well and has the right structures in place to ensure that your son is well-educated, well-cared for and safe.
