Reviews and inspections

The school was inspected by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) in November 2011 and the new report can be downloaded below. The school was judged outstanding in its aim of providing a first-class education for our pupils, fulfilling our aim for each pupil to achieve her academic potential in an environment that is both challenging and supportive.

Excellent teaching, a well-planned curriculum, pupils who are intellectually fulfilled, lively and stimulating enrichment beyond the classroom are all cited as the way we achieve this. It also highlights the ‘willingness of the pupils to take risks and to work independently’ and that they are ‘educated beyond exam requirements’.

Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is inspected separately to the rest of the school by both the ISI and OFSTED. Both reports were outstanding, particularly in praise of the balance between child-centred and adult-led learning. They can all be downloaded here:
