RGS rated as ‘Exceptional’ in ISI inspection


This is a unique accolade that sets us apart from other co-ed day schools in the country. The Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) inspects schools according to a standard framework for inspection which it has laid down for the purposes of ensuring that standards are maintained and that the school complies with relevant legal requirements. This framework has been agreed with the DCSF and they have recognised the ISI as the body responsible for the regular inspection of schools in England which are affiliated to the ISC.


The attitudes to learning of pupils of all needs and abilities are exemplary – they show immense enthusiasm for their studies and great pride in their work. Pupils and teachers successfully work together to fulfil high aspirations.


Here’s just a few of the highlights from the report:
