ISI is appointed by the Secretary of State for Education to inspect association independent schools in England (as outlined in section 87A of the Children Act 1989 and section 106 of the Education and Skills Act 2008).
We inspect against the statutory Independent School Standards, which cover all aspects of school life. These include the quality of education provided and the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils.
