A full ISI Inspection took place over a week in February 2014. The six inspectors found that the curriculum ‘provides pupils with a rich learning experience’ and noted that ‘teaching is effective in promoting pupils’ progress so that they thrive in an encouraging atmosphere’
The school scored highly in other areas too, with inspectors commenting that ‘the personal development of all pupils throughout the school is excellent’ and ‘the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of the pupils is excellent’.
In addition, the inspection praised the co-curricular opportunities offered by the school, from ‘excellent support offered for pupils displaying a particular talent in sport, drama or music’ to ‘a wide range of cultural opportunities in many subjects, and activities which include trips to museums, theatres and galleries’.
Regulatory Compliance Inspection Report
A Regulatory Compliance Inspection took place in February 2018. Regulatory compliance inspections from ISI focus on whether the school meets the Education (Independent Schools Standards) Regulations and the Early Years Foundation Stage Statutory Framework. These are the national standards for all independent schools. In each of the eight discrete areas, the inspectors found that ‘the standards are met’. This is the highest possible achievement under this current inspection framework and is a huge accolade.
