ISI inspections

ISI conducts its inspections with pupils in mind. It seeks to improve quality and effectiveness of education, while also ensuring their welfare is properly cared for.

Summary of findings

The Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) is the body responsible for inspecting the schools that are members of the Associations that make up the Independent Schools Council. After inspecting schools, it reports back to the Department of Education as to the extent that schools meet statutory requirements.

Within this guide we will discuss:

  • Why ISI inspections are important
  • What schools need to do to prepare
  • How complaints about inspections can be reported
