Inspection Reports

Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI).

The Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) is appointed by the Department for Education to inspect association independent schools in England.

The independent, government-approved body provides objective inspections to safeguard the quality and effectiveness of the education, care and welfare of children in schools.

ISI is not an arm of the government, but an independent, not-for-profit inspectorate. Its work is monitored on behalf of the Department for Education (DfE) and a public report is made annually to the Secretary of State.

ISI regularly contributes to the development of the national policy for education and welfare, including the latest DfE legislation and statutory guidance.

ISI Focused Compliance and Educational Quality Report

March 2022

The latest ISI Inspection, completed in March 2022, was a Focused Compliance and Education Quality Inspection, which is a combination of both types of inspection. Highlights include:

  • Pupils’ attitudes to learning are very positive and they demonstrate good initiative and independence, both individually and collaboratively.

  • Pupils have a strong moral compass and clear awareness of right and wrong which underpin the way they behave in school.

  • Pupils make a high rate of progress in changes to their attainment over time.

  • Throughout the school, pupils of all ages and abilities demonstrate good knowledge, understanding and skills across all curriculum subjects.

  • Pupils achieve well and show substantial pride in their school because of the effective leadership of academic provision.

  • Throughout the school, pupils of all ages display a good awareness, appreciation and understanding of diversity and different cultures.

  • The size of the school and the small number in each class enables strong and cohesive relationships to develop between the pupils and their peers and between pupils and staff. These good outcomes in pupils’ personal development are due to the strong commitment of senior leaders, school governors and staff to providing effective pastoral support.
