ISI Inspection Reports

The Independent Schools Inspectorate carried out a school inspection in January 2024. The inspection took place between 23-25 January 2024.

The School was found fully compliant against all of the regulatory standards.

Key inspection findings: 

  • The school fulfils its aims successfully. Leaders nurture pupils’ talents and interest from a young age. They provide a broad curriculum and an extensive co-curricular programme, which engage pupils to excel. Leaders are dynamic, visible and approachable, and constantly seek to further improve the wellbeing of all pupils.
  • Pupils achieve highly in public examinations. This is due to the guidance, support and encouragement pupils receive from their knowledgeable teachers. The provision for pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) is a significant strength of the school.
  • The extensive co-curricular and enrichment programmes are a significant strength of the school. They bring challenge, inclusivity and diversity to pupils’ education.
  • Self-evaluation and reflection are integral to leaders’ approach to strategy and planning. Knowledgeable, supportive governors provide strong systematic oversight of leaders’ work, whilst ensuring an appropriate level of challenge.
  • Leaders have put in place effective programme to support pupils in their personal development. Personal, social and health education (PSHE) informs pupils well about important topics relating to wellbeing. Pupils respect each other, understand the importance of feeling valued and valuing others and how knowing yourself well is key to wellbeing and achievement.
  • In line with the school’s aims of service to others, pupils contribute to the local and wider community through a range of community service and charity initiatives. The careers programme is effective in helping pupils make decisions about their future pathways.
  • Pupils are taught about safeguarding matters. They know how to keep themselves safe, including online, and how to report a concern. Leaders prioritise training for all staff and governors on effective safeguarding.
