The ISI report states:

  • The quality of pupils’ achievements and learning is exceptional
  • The contribution of curricular and extra-curricular activities is excellent
  • The contribution of teaching is excellent
  • The spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils is excellent
  • The contribution of arrangements for pastoral care is excellent

An ‘exceptional’ grading is only possible in the pupils’ achievements and learning category and can only be awarded if all other categories are deemed excellent.

The Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) is the body approved by the Department for Education for the purpose of inspecting schools belonging to Independent Schools Council (ISC) Associations and reporting on compliance with independent school regulations. ISI inspections are also carried out under arrangements of the ISC Associations for the maintenance and improvement of the quality of their membership.
