Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI)
Founded in 2001, the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) is the only independent inspectorate approved by the Secretary of State for Education to conduct statutory inspections of independent schools in the UK. Their remit extends to the inspection of 1300 independent schools which are members of the associations which form the Independent Schools Council (ISC). ISI is also an accredited inspectorate of British Schools Overseas (BSO), inspecting a wide variety of international schools in many different countries, including in the last year: Kuwait, Belgium, Brazil, China, Czech Republic, France, Gran Canaria, Kenya, Nigeria, Romania and Spain. Through our commercial subsidiary, ISI Consultancy Ltd, we also provide an extensive range of bespoke consultancy support services, training and seminars for international schools, governments and education institutions, tailored to meet specific needs and requirements as well as local consultants based across the world.
