The Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) is the body responsible for the inspection of schools in membership of the Associations that make up the Independent Schools Council.

ISI is approved for the purpose of inspection under Section 109 of the Education and Skills Act 2008 and reports to the Department for Education on the extent to which schools meet statutory requirements.

ISI inspection is for the benefit of pupils and seeks to improve the quality and effectiveness of their education and of the care for their welfare.

This section provides information and resources on all aspects of ISI inspections, and provides guidance and support for schools, governors, proprietors and teachers about the ISI’s work. See the links below or on the menu sidebar for more information.
