ISI Reports

All independent schools have a full qualitative inspection every six years carried out by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) and a compliance inspection every three years. Blundell’s was inspected for compliance by an ISI team in March 2016 who were completely satisfied that the School met all the standards set by the Department for Education. A full inspection took place in 2013 and the report concluded that the School is ‘highly successful in achieving its aims’ with pupils experiencing ‘a wide-ranging education, based on an excellent curriculum’ and that the pupils' personal development and attitudes towards learning are excellent.

Please read both reports together with comments from the Chairman of the Governors and the Head.
