The School has just received the final report from the Independent Schools Inspectorate following its Regulatory Compliance Inspection on 19-20 April 2016.

We are delighted to be able to report that the School has been found to be compliant in every respect with the regulations which apply to us.

In this new kind of inspection, the inspectors are not allowed to use any value judgements, such as ‘outstanding’ or ‘satisfactory’: it is a simple pass or fail – and we have passed.

The text of report actually reads:

'The school meets the standards in the schedule to the Education (Independent School Standards) Regulations 2014 and the National Minimum Standards for Boarding Schools 2015 and associated requirements, and no further action is required as a result of this inspection

I am very grateful to all governors, pupils and staff who worked so hard to ensure such a good result for the School. Many thanks, too, to all those parents who took the time to complete the parental questionnaire which was sent out just before the inspectors arrived. We are all very grateful for your support.
