ISI Inspection Report 2011


Inspection 2017

Because Leicester Grammar and Leicester Grammar Junior Schools were rated as ‘excellent’ in every category at our previous inspection in 2011, the schools were required to be inspected by a smaller team from the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) in March 2017.  This specialist team focussed on our compliance with all the regulations which apply to schools such as ours, which currently number over 400.  The outcome of such an inspection is a report which is much briefer and targeted at whether the schools meet, or don’t meet, the standard set by each regulation.  In addition, the best judgement descriptor that the inspectors can use is the term ‘good’.  Both schools were found to be fully compliant.

No doubt parents will be pleased to read we have been found to be fully compliant but probably this is only what you would expect from schools such as ours.  Possibly of more interest after this is the initial comment from the report under the section ‘Quality of Education’ which reads as follows:

At GCSE in the years 2012 to 2015, performance has been well above the national average for maintained schools.  IGCSE results in the years 2012 to 2015 have been higher than worldwide norms. In the sixth form, A-level results in the years 2012 to 2015 have been well above the national average for sixth formers in maintained schools.
