ISI Inspection Report

The Inspection Report presenting findings from the school’s inspection by the Independent Schools Inspectorate in June 2013 concluded that the school is excellent in the majority of areas, including the quality of teaching, pupils’ personal development and curricular & extra-curricular provision.

ISI Inspection Report highlights:

“Pupils’ high levels of achievement are attained largely as a result of the excellent teaching that is highly effective in promoting pupils’ rapid progress.”

“Small class sizes enable teachers to give pupils individual feedback and support as the lesson is progressing and helps the pupils to move their learning forward.”

“The broad educational programmes children experience give them many opportunities to develop a range of skills and to express their ideas with confidence and with evident enjoyment.”

“Secure relationships are built on mutual trust and respect, within a caring environment.”

“The pupils’ excellent standards of achievement in academic work are also reflected in a wide range of extra-curricular activities. They benefit from an excellent curriculum whose breadth and richness prepares them thoroughly for their senior schools.”

“Pupils welcome opportunities to take on roles of responsibility and the care they show for one another is excellent. Their behaviour in lessons is exemplary.”

“Achievement in sport is high and teams perform to a good standard against local and regional opposition. Three pupils have reached national level in the Independent Schools’ Association athletics championships. Pupils have considerable talent in music and they take great pleasure in participating individually and communally in a range of musical activities, with over a third of the pupils gaining success in learning to play musical instruments.”

“The delivery of the curriculum is enhanced by resources such as the well-equipped science room, extensive physical education and games facilities and the newly refurbished ICT suite. The library is well stocked with both fiction and non-fiction books and located in a prominent position in the school. These specialist facilities improve the pupils’ access to the curriculum contributing to the excellent delivery.”
