Inspection Report November 2023

4th March 24

ISI Report November 2023


Under the new framework for independent schools effective from September 2023, our school had a routine inspection by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) between Tuesday 28 – Thursday 30 November 2023. This was a very thorough inspection over three days, with four highly experienced inspectors and one shadow inspector in school, reviewing all aspects of school life in depth


The report covers four sections and safeguarding:

Section 1: Leadership and management, and governance

Section 2: Quality of pupils’ education, training and recreation

Section 3: Pupils’ physical and mental health and emotional wellbeing

Section 4: Pupils’ social and economic education, and contribution to society



I am very pleased to advise that the school was found to have met all the standards in every section. The report is written in clear and unambiguous language. ISI will now provide nuanced evaluations: there will no longer be overall judgements / grades. The report begins with a summary of findings and then more detail within the report for each section. The inspection report is very much evidence based and will reflect what inspectors saw, read, heard and noticed as part of the inspection. Evaluation was resulted from careful consideration of the inspection evidence.

I am delighted, on behalf of the whole school community (parents, pupils, staff, and trustees), for this external validation of our work. To see the report please go to ‘Inspection Reports’ under the ‘About’ section of our website.
