The Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI)
The Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) is the body responsible for the inspection of schools in membership of the Associations that make up the Independent Schools Council.
ISI is approved for the purpose of inspection under Section 109 of the Education and Skills Act 2008 and reports to the Department for Education on the extent to which schools meet statutory requirements.
ISI conducts Educational Quality and Compliance Inspection Reports. Educational quality inspections report on the two main outcomes for pupils: achievement and personal development. Our most recent inspection stated, ‘The quality of pupils’ achievements and learning is exceptional‘ (full inspection report can be found below).
Regulatory compliance inspections report on a school’s compliance with the Independent School Standards Regulations, and where applicable the National Minimum Standards for Boarding Schools and the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).
