The Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) carried out an inspection of Whitgift in May 2017. The results were published in June and the School was delighted with the outcome. The Compliance Report required a straightforward pass/fail mark, and we are very pleased to confirm that every area of the School passed inspection. The Educational Quality Report findings serve as a superb commendation for the School, reflecting as they do the outstanding quality of Whitgift’s overall provision. Staff and students can be truly proud of their achievements.
In the two categories on which the School was assessed, we achieved the top rating of Excellent, in both the quality of pupils’ achievements and the quality of their personal development. It is a testament to the hard work of all the staff and pupils at Whitgift that the key findings of the report acknowledge not only that pupils’ achievement is outstanding across a wide range of activities, but also that the relationships of pupils with each other and staff display a high degree of respect and tolerance, also reflecting an appreciation of diversity.
The following statement encapsulates the findings of the report: “The excellent achievement of pupils is underpinned by the commitment of leadership, management and governance to ensuring an environment of ambitious expectation which promotes in pupils the desire to aim high and work for success.” Whitgift will continue to strive for excellence in all aspects of school life.
