INSPECTION REPORTS

ISI Focused Compliance and Educational Quality Inspection March 2020

Schools registered with the ISA are inspected and regulated by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI), which is an unrelated regulation body for independent schools. The same standards are applied by ISI as Ofsted, and similar reports, gradings and recommendations are made.

In March 2020 we were visited by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) for a focused compliance and educational quality inspection. The full report should be published shortly.

Comments from the ISI inspection report included

“Pupils throughout the school have a positive attitude towards their learning and are keen to succeed.”

“Pupils embrace opportunities to contribute in lessons.”

“Pupils’ attitudes are particularly strong in lessons where they are presented with a variety of approaches which support their individual learning styles.”

“More able pupils take responsibility for tackling more challenging questions.”

“Pupils are confident communicators.”

“Linguistics skills of a high standard were in evidence with extremely descriptive language.”

“Pupils enjoy participating in the academic and extra-curricular activities available.”

“Pupils are proud of being part of the school and have a strong sense of loyalty to it.”

“Pupils have good self-understanding.”

“The personal, social and health education (PSHE) programme has enabled younger pupils to develop an excellent understanding of the definition of resilience, and pupils described how this has helped them when faced with difficulties.”

“Pupils feel very well prepared to make decisions regarding their future.”

“Senior pupils are conscious that they are role models for younger pupils, and they make decisions about how they behave around school.”

“Pupils collaborate with one another very productively in many aspects of school life.”
