ISI Inspection

In February 2020 Regent Independent College underwent a Focused Compliance and Educational Quality Inspection by ISI who inspect independent schools on behalf of the Department for Education.

We are delighted to announce the following key findings made by the inspection team:

  • The school meets the standards in the schedule to the Education (Independent School Standards) Regulations 2014 and associated requirements and no further action is required as a result of this inspection.
  • The quality of the pupils’ academic and other achievements is good.
  • The quality of the pupils’ personal development is excellent.

We strive to provide the best service possible to our students and are thrilled to see this recognised by ISI.

A full version of the report is available here. However, we include some of the highlights below:

“Pupils show very positive attitudes to learning.”“Pupils are highly resilient and develop excellent levels of self-knowledge, confidence and self-esteem.”

“Pupils comment that teachers give rapid verbal and written feedback which helps them improve.”

“Across a range of subjects, pupils’ written work demonstrates increasingly detailed development of ideas and exploration of opinion, encouraged by challenging teacher feedback.”

“Pupils have a clear sense of direction and say that the guidance of staff and the strong focus on personal growth prepares them well for the next stage of their education.”

“Pupils are well behaved, thoughtful and entirely respectful of each other’s needs.”

“They have a very secure understanding of mental and emotional wellbeing and speak frankly about its importance.”

“Pupils’ collaboration with each other across the entire age range is a strength of the school.”

“Lesson observations and scrutiny of work shows that pupils make good progress from their individual starting points.”

Our previous ISI report, which was a Regulatory Compliance inspection in May 2017, is available here.
