About ISI inspections

The Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) is a body approved by the British Government for the purpose of inspecting schools in England and overseas. As such, ISI reports to the UK’s Department for Education (DfE) in regards to the extent to which schools meet the relevant Standards for British Schools Overseas (BSOs) and comply with the ISI Framework.

The inspection consists of two parts: a preliminary two-day visit followed by a four-day (team) inspection. The inspectors observe lessons, conduct formal interviews with pupils and staff and examine samples of pupils’ work. They hold discussions with senior members of staff, the Chair of Governors, the Chief Executive and members of the local Advisory Council.

Furthermore, inspectors observe a sample of the schools extra-curricular activities and attend registration sessions and assemblies. The responses of parents and pupils to pre-inspection questionnaires are analysed, and the inspectors examine documentation made available by the school.

 

THE SCHOOL IS COMPLIANT WITH ALL BSO REGULATIONS
