ISI Report

We are delighted by the outcome of our recent ISI report, which recognises and celebrates all that the children accomplish during their time at Blundell’s Prep.

The inspection had two components: Focused Compliance and Educational Quality.

The Focused Compliance inspection reports only on the school’s compliance with the standards and all were successfully met.

The Educational Quality inspection reports on the quality of the school’s work. It focuses on the two key outcomes: - The achievement of the pupils, including their academic development, and - The personal development of the pupils. In both, the school was graded as EXCELLENT, the highest grade that may be awarded.

The key findings were as follows:

The quality of the pupils’ academic and other achievements is excellent.

  • Pupils’ communication skills are excellent; they are highly articulate, expressing themselves with clarity and panache.
  • Pupils across the school display sophisticated study skills for their age, drawing knowledge from a variety of sources.
  • Pupils demonstrate strong numeracy skills and are highly proficient at applying these in other areas of learning.
  • Pupils are extremely enthusiastic learners who strive for high standards in their work.

The quality of the pupils’ personal development is excellent.

  • Pupils are exceptionally well behaved and show enormous integrity.
  • Pupils are highly sociable, friendly and cooperative with each other and adults.
  • Pupils have an excellent understanding of what it means to be healthy and how to keep safe.
  • Pupils are confident and resilient, understanding that making mistakes is part of learning.
