Inspection Reports

Independent Schools Inspectorate 

Our Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) inspection took place in May 2022 and covered every aspect of Aldwickbury School, including Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and boarding.

This was a rigorous evaluation by a highly experienced ISI Inspection Team that highlighted the exceptional standards we uphold in all aspects of our school life.  

Unlike OFSTED Inspections in maintained schools, ISI reports do not give an overall grading for a school. Instead, ISI make judgements on a four-point scale (Excellent, Good, Sound and Unsatisfactory).   The judgement of ‘Excellent’ represents the highest possible outcome that any school can achieve.

In this report we are delighted that Aldwickbury was recognised as fully compliant and ‘Excellent’ in all areas of education.
