Inspection Reports

We are delighted to release our recent Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) report  which took place May 2022 and has now been published and released.

Focused Compliance and Educational Quality Inspection Report

Our previous reports can be found on the ISI website.

We have been waiting a very long time for our inspection, which was delayed numerous times due to COVID-19, and so we were genuinely delighted to welcome the inspectors into the school when they arrived in May. The findings of the report are a wonderful reflection of the hard work and commitment of all of our staff and children and we feel represents a true picture of The Firs Independent School. We hope you will take some time to read the report but want to share just a few of the comments contained within.

“Almost all pupils display very strong levels of self-esteem in their activities around school, benefiting from the small, nurturing environment.”

“Pupils display a highly developed moral code based upon the values espoused in the Firs Way.”

“Pupils’ attainment and progress are good overall. Pupils with SEND or EAL make rapid progress as a result of effective support”

“Pupils display an excellent moral understanding and are well-behaved both in lessons and during less structured times.”

As well as celebrating the positives, we are already striving to address any recommendations made in the report and will ensure these are embedded during our next academic year. We have already formulated our school development plan for the academic year 2022-23 and look forward to developing our school further.

An inspection is always a demanding experience but one we have found both positive and informative and will aid us in continuing to provide the best possible education for your children.
