The Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) is responsible for the inspection of independent schools who are members of the Independent Schools Council (ISC). The ISI is a government approved inspectorate who are monitored by Ofsted on behalf of the department for education.
The ISI’s most recent inspection gave a high number of ‘excellent’ judgements and many of the ‘good’ grades were close to excellent. These judgments covered the following categories: pupils’ achievements, pupils’ personal development and the school’s leadership and management. What is very clear is that the school’s core values are effectively embedded within the school’s practice and this was noted throughout by the inspectors.
