Bryanston celebrates excellent inspection report
In September Bryanston welcomed a team of 12 inspectors from the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) for a scheduled integrated inspection.
During their four-day visit the inspectors observed a good number and range of lessons, correction periods and tutorials across the school, as well as looking at all the facilities. They spoke to pupils, staff and governors and also collected feedback from pupils and parents in pre-inspection questionnaires.
In summary the inspectors found the school to be excellent in each of the nine areas examined and highly successful in meeting its aims to explore and develop the individual talents of pupils.
Head Sarah Thomas, said, “I am immensely proud of everyone who works so hard to make Bryanston the best it can be. This is not just our teachers and pupils, but also our support staff and governors. Moreover, I am deeply grateful to Bryanston parents for their overwhelmingly positive support during the inspection, particularly their responses to the pre-inspection survey.”
As a school we know we cannot be complacent and we are already looking at the two recommendations for further improvement made within the report, namely to strengthen departmental appraisal and the monitoring of teaching and learning, as well as to increase further the intellectual challenge for the most able pupils in years 9 and 10.
