We Are Excellent!

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.

We are delighted that in 2017 independent ISI inspectors awarded us the highest possible rating of Excellent in All Areas from 2 to 18 years:
