We are delighted to announce that following our recent ISI Compliance Inspection on 29th and 30th November 2017 the school meets all the standards in the schedule to the Education (Independent School Standards) Regulations 2014, the relevant requirements of the statutory framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage, and associated requirements.
The inspection was a Regulatory Compliance Only inspection and as such reports only on the schools compliance with the exacting Independent Schools Inspectorate standards. The standards represent the minimum standards and judgements are given as either met or not met. The inspection does not make evaluations on the educational quality of the school beyond those that are required to meet minimum standards. An Educational Quality Inspection will follow in the coming years.

Our most recent Integrated Inspection (which includes judgements on Educational Quality) was carried out in 2013.
“…pupils’ achievement and learning is excellent. Pupils attain high standards and are extremely well educated, fully achieving the school’s aim to enable pupils to know how to think, rather than what to think.”
“Pastoral care is outstanding. Pupils thrive in the established family atmosphere, where mutual courtesy and consideration of the feelings of others is the norm.”
“Teaching provides outstanding support and guidance so that pupils …. make rapid progress”
“Pupils… benefit from a wide and varied programme of curricular and extra-curricular activities.”
“Pupils’ personal development is excellent. The city location is well used to enrich and stimulate pupils’ spiritual development through a varied programme of cultural visits to theatres, museums and galleries.”
