How can inspection reports help me choose a school for my child?

ISI inspection reports provide a frank, reliable and objective overall account of a school’s provision and outcomes for pupils, however, reports are no substitute for a personal visit to the school to evaluate for yourself the extent to which you think it will suit the talents, character and needs of your child. Our reports are not designed to provide a ranking or league table of schools.

See Guide to Reports for more information.
