Inspection Reports

As a family of independent schools our inspections are carried out by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI), the Ofsted equivalent for independent schools.  ISI is a Government approved inspectorate responsible for the inspection of more than 1200 independent schools which collectively educate more than half a million children.

ISI Interim Inspection

ISI inspections are designed to provide an objective view of the quality of a school’s educational provision; the effectiveness of child welfare support; and compliance with national standards and regulations.  We are delighted that independent ISI inspectors believe that we are an excellent family of schools!

“The pupils’ overall achievement is excellent.  The school’s aims to develop its pupils intellectually and encourage independent thought are met well. Pupils of all abilities and ages, achieve consistently well in response to good, often excellent teaching which shows high expectations of pupils.”

Boarding Inspection

Being a boarding school means that we have additional responsibilities of care over and above that of a standard day school.  Boarding schools in the UK are highly regulated and our latest boarding inspection confirms that we meet all of the requirements for a school of our nature.

“Boarders are offered a wide choice of good quality, appetising and nutritious meals, which take into account special dietary requirements.”

Early Years Inspection

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) covers children from birth to 5 years.  During this time, children have very specific needs and the EYFS inspection is designed to evaluate how well these needs are being met.  We are delighted that our latest EYFS inspection report confirms that we are outstanding in all areas.

“The setting makes outstanding provision in meeting the needs of the range of children who attend.  Standards are consistently very high throughout all aspects of the care and educational progress on offer.”
