ISI Inspection Report March 2016: Parkside School is excellent in all areas.
We are proud to share our ISI Inspection report with you and we hope you enjoy gaining an in-depth understanding of what our school is all about.
You will be aware that a school inspection is a rigorous investigation conducted by a team of impartial, highly qualified educationalists and therefore the findings are a true reflection of the school’s attributes. For clarity; the ISI (Independent Schools Inspectorate) Grade ‘Excellent’, which is what we are judged to be, is equivalent to the OFSTED Inspection Grade ‘Outstanding’.
What is so evident from our inspection is that from the time pupils enter Parkside at the age of 2 through to the time they leave to go onto senior school their achievements in all areas are excellent. It is the breadth of those achievements though that is so crucial to a child’s future success:
‘a tangible love of learning’
‘able to express themselves articulately and confidently’
‘pupil’s discussions feature well-reasoned and clearly expressed logical arguments’
‘they reflect on their learning and personal achievements in a mature and sophisticated manner and demonstrate an entirely positive approach to education and self-improvement’.
Parkside’s whole ethos is based around valuing and developing the individual child to be the best they can be academically, socially and emotionally. As our inspection report shows we are true to our ethos and our pupils are gaining the attributes that will put them in a strong position, in the future, to take their place in a rapidly evolving society and a challenging global job market. Our partnership with parents cements this process and I have every confidence that we will maintain and enhance these very high standards long into the future.
