The School was inspected in May 2017 by the Independent School Inspectorate (ISI), the largest inspectors of independent schools in the UK (http://www.isi.net). This was a full Regulatory Compliance Inspection.  Regulatory compliance inspections report on a school’s compliance with the Independent School Standards Regulations, and where applicable the National Minimum Standards for Boarding Schools and the Early Years Foundation Stage. We are pleased and proud to advise that the school met each of these standards and is therefore fully compliant.  This particular type of inspection does not provide a qualitative judgement (they do not tell us that the School is ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ as has been the case with previous inspections), the very best a school can do is to meet the standards.

St. Margaret’s Prep School last had a full inspection by the ISI in June 2011, and by Ofsted in June 2014. We are very proud that both found us to be ‘Outstanding’. Copies of all inspection reports are available to download below, or can be obtained from the school office.
