Holistic Excellence for All – ISI Inspection 2021

14th February 2022 — Alleyn’s was delighted to receive its latest ISI inspection report this month, with an assessment of ‘excellent’ in both academic and pastoral areas.

The key findings of the report stated that “The quality of the pupils’ academic and other achievements is excellent” and “The quality of the pupils’ personal development is excellent.” It also noted that “The school successfully achieves its aim of nurturing holistic excellence for all through the development of curiosity, reflection, determination and a lifelong love of learning.”

Jane Lunnon, Head of Alleyn’s, said: “The judgement of fully compliant, and excellent in both areas: academic and pastoral, is a wonderful testament to our pupils and our staff and a reflection of the warmth, collegiality, and professionalism of our community, which has continued to shine bright even in the midst of a global pandemic. I am enormously proud of our school, our staff and, above all, of our remarkable pupils.”

The inspection visit took place in November 2021, and comprised a team of nine inspectors who were on site for four days to meet with representatives from across the Alleyn’s community, examine pupils’ work, observe lessons and co-curricular sessions. It was both a compliance inspection (assessing compliance with statutory government regulations) and a full educational quality inspection – assessing pupils’ academic progress and personal development against a thorough set of criteria.
