Inspection Reports

The Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) is the body approved by the Secretary of State for the purpose of inspecting schools which are, or whose heads are, in membership of the associations which form the Independent Schools Council (ISC).

Unlike Ofsted, the national inspectorate, the ISI does not provide a single overarching judgement, but instead gives clear judgements on regulatory compliance (whether the Independent Schools’ Standards and Regulations are met), with information on the quality of the Schools' work.

A new framework has been in place since September 2023, focusing on five areas: school leadership, education, wellbeing, PSHE and economic education, and social contribution, with a section on safeguarding.

"We are delighted with this report which recognises what an excellent school Tranby is.  As well as commenting on our high academic standards, I am particularly thrilled that the inspectors saw how motivated, ambitious and enthusiastic our pupils are.

The inspectors’ comments are a powerful recognition of what we are achieving.  At Tranby, we constantly strive to give our pupils a breadth of experiences and opportunities outside the classroom so that they can develop into compassionate and responsible young people.  It is therefore very heartening that the inspectors saw many examples of our excellent pastoral care and our pupils demonstrating our values: innovation, confidence, aspiration, respect and enthusiasm.  Our school community is like no other, one that I’m proud to have my family a part of.

Their findings were outstandingly positive, and it is a testament to the hard work of everyone at the School, pupils, staff and governors alike."
