ISI Educational Quality & Focused Compliance For Schools with Residential Provision Inspection Reports – March 2017
Following the Independent Schools Inspectorate’s visit to Queen Anne’s in March 2017, we are delighted to have achieved the highest mark possible in all areas. This is a direct result of much hard work put in by staff; but it is also a result of the way in which the inspectors were welcomed into the school by staff and pupils alike, informed openly about what pupils feel about Queen Anne’s and of course, the outstanding achievements that are accomplished here.
The detailed reports are linked below and underline the continuing progress that the school is making in all areas. The inspection itself is split into 2 parts – a compliance inspection which deals with legal and regulatory issues related to education, the suitability of the school premises and staff and other similar items; and an inspection of educational quality which deals with the quality of pupils’ academic and other achievements, and the quality of the pupils’ personal development.
ISI Intermediate Boarding Inspection – February 2014
Please click here to view a copy of our latest intermediate ISI Boarding Inspection Report. This inspection ensures that we are compliant with all regulations covering boarding and that the girls in our care are safe and well looked after. An intermediate inspection can only result in two categories: pass or fail. The report is based purely on regulatory evidence and the inspectors are not allowed to include any descriptors which are judgement based and so it does read as rather a bland document. However, we did achieve the best possible result with a pass grade for each Standard and as an outcome for the entire process. The oral feedback was very positive indeed and both inspectors were very complimentary about our pupils and the whole Queen Anne’s community.
Independent Schools’ Inspectorate (ISI) and Ofsted Reports – March 2011
Following a visit by the Independent Schools’ Inspectorate (ISI) and Ofsted, our ‘no limits approach to learning’ has been given a seal of approval by the inspectors. The two reports cite that the overwhelming majority of areas within school are ‘excellent’ or ‘outstanding’ – the highest categories awarded. The inspectors visited the school in March 2011 when all areas of school life, including the quality of academic and other achievements, the quality of pupils’ personal development and the effectiveness of governance, leadership and management were judged during the inspection.
“The ISI and Ofsted reports are very thorough and an excellent assessment of the quality education and pastoral support that we provide at Queen Anne’s.” Headmistress Mrs Julia Harrington
