Senior School and Sixth Form underwent an inspection by the Independent Schools Inspectorate in October 2016.
ISI is an independent, government-approved body which provides objective inspections to safeguard the quality and effectiveness of the education, care and welfare of children in schools. Their work is monitored on behalf of the Department for Education (DfE) and a public report is made annually to the Secretary of State. ISI regularly contributes to the development of the national policy for education and welfare, including the latest DfE legislation and statutory guidance.
ISI inspections are designed according to a framework agreed with the DfE, and report against all the relevant regulations. ISI aims to provide high-quality inspections and pays particular attention to hearing pupils’ voices.
