We are delighted to announce that following our recent ISI Compliance Inspection on 22nd and 23rd of January 2020 the school meets all the standards in the schedule to the Education (Independent School Standards) Regulations 2014, the relevant requirements of the statutory framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage, and associated requirements.
The inspection was a Regulatory Compliance Only inspection and as such reports only on the schools compliance with the exacting Independent Schools Inspectorate standards. The standards represent the minimum standards and judgements are given as either met or not met. The inspection does not make evaluations on the educational quality of the school beyond those that are required to meet minimum standards.
ISI inspections are renowned for being robust and there has been a great deal of publicity recently about the tougher, more forensic approach being taken by inspectors. The judgement is vindication of the incredible hard work and professionalism of all the staff, the hard work and behaviour of our pupils, and the support of you as parents.
