What are ISI reports?

The ISI (Independent Schools’ Inspectorate) is an approved Educational Oversight body authorised by the Home Office to inspect privately funded education colleges. An ISI report provides objective and reliable reports on the quality of colleges, and by placing reports in the public domain, makes this information available to students, Government, and the wider community.

Acting Principal Katja Behrens confirms that the inspection, conducted in October 2023, found that the college’s performance was ranked as “exceeds expectations”, with inspectors maintaining that the college continues to display excellence in all assessed categories.
