Unicorn School

Inspection Reports

The Unicorn School is now a member of the Independent Schools Association (ISA) and the latest inspection was carried out by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI).

Dear Parents,

As you are aware ISI (Independent School’s Inspectorate) inspected the school from January 10th to the 14th 2022 . Please find attached a copy of the full inspection report. The school staff and governors are delighted with the findings of the inspection and would like to thank the two inspectors for their hard work in understanding our children and in getting to know the school systems so well.

The Inspectors undertook a Regulatory Compliance Inspection. This inspection checks that a schools’ policies and practices are compliant with the regulations set by the Department for Education.

Their report and judgements make a clear statement about the school’s compliance with regulations and, if applicable, the necessary action it must take to meet requirements. Recommendations are normally made to help schools identify and address any areas for improvement and build on good practice.

We are delighted to say that the school has met all the ISI regulations with no recommendations at all. 

Schools undergo a scheduled inspection on average every three years. However, on the 30th June 2023 we had a successful  material change inspection to obtain permission to go up to 120 pupils.

Our next inspection will be a full Education Quality and Focussed Compliance (EQI) Inspection. This inspection will look at the quality of education the school provides and checks a targeted section of policies and practices.

Finally, once again, a huge thank you to all the parents who completed the ISI parental questionnaire. The comments from the questionnaire were overwhelmingly positive.

With very best wishes,

Andrew Day,
Head Teacher
