Inspection is for the benefit of the pupils and students, and seeks to improve the quality and effectiveness of their education and care.

Why is an ISI Report Important?

When it comes to choosing, a school or college for your son or daughter, it is important to have as much information as possible. ISI inspection reports are comprehensive and impartial to help you as parents make an informed decision as to whether we can meet your aspirations.

Regent Independent College was inspected by ISI, the Independent Schools Inspectorate, on 4th and 5th May 2017. The inspection was a Regulatory Compliance Inspection, which means that the inspectors were reporting on the extent to which the College had met the Education (Independent School Standards) Regulations 2014.

The inspection lasted two days and was very thorough, primarily involving an in-depth review of College documentation, meetings with students and staff, and lesson observations.

The College was assessed in the following eight areas, or ‘parts’:

  • Quality of education provided
  • Spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils
  • Welfare, health and safety of pupils
  • Suitability of staff, supply staff and proprietors
  • Premises of and accommodation at schools
  • Provision of information
  • Manner in which complaints are handled
  • Quality of leadership and management of schools

We are delighted to announce that Regent Independent College met all the standards listed in the Independent School Standards, across all eight parts. This is the best possible outcome for the College and the inspectors recommended that no further action was required.
