ISI Inspection

‘The excellent relationships amongst all in the school community, the pupils’ good behaviour and their positive attitudes to learning support their high levels of attainment’
‘The personal development of the pupils is excellent. Pupils throughout the school are confident, articulate and mature for their ages.’
‘Pupils show great enjoyment of their lessons in all year groups, work hard in class and on their homework, and take pride in the presentation of their written work.’
Independent Schools Inspectorate – Report on The King Alfred School 2014

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.
