Inspection Reports

The Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) is the body approved by the Department for Education for the purpose of inspecting schools belonging to Independent Schools Council (ISC) Associations and reporting on compliance with independent school regulations. ISI inspections are also carried out under arrangements of the ISC Associations for the maintenance and improvement of the quality of their membership.

A focused compliance inspection which was combined with an inspection of educational quality, was undertaken in May 2019 at Manor House School.

The compliance inspection reports only on the school’s compliance with the standards. The standards represent minimum requirements and judgements are given as either met, or not met. All schools are required to meet all the standards applicable to them. At Manor House School, all standards were met with no further action required.

The educational quality inspection reports on the quality of the school’s work. It focuses on the two key outcomes:

  • The personal development of the pupils and
  • The achievement of the pupils, including their academic development.

A full copy of the report can be found below.
