ISI is accountable to the Department for Education - the regulator for independent schools in England.

We have an independent Board of Directors, which holds the leadership team to account for the delivery and quality of inspections.

Our Board is wholly independent from the Independent Schools Council, their associations and the schools that ISI inspects.

The Board is chaired by Christine Swabey and currently comprises eight directors who were appointed because of their experience and skills.

The Board adheres to the Nolan Principles of Public Life and ISI’s own Code of Conduct. ISI's articles of association can be downloaded here.

The detailed scrutiny of certain areas of the Board’s responsibilities is delegated to two Committees. These are the Finance and Risk Committee and the Governance, Nominations and Remuneration Committee.
