Inspection Reports

St David’s has been rated ‘Excellent’ in all categories in its latest school inspection.

Independent schools are inspected by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) approximately every three years. The ISI is the independent school equivalent to Ofsted, reporting to the DfE. Inspections alternate between Regulatory Compliance Inspections and Integrated Inspections.

In June 2019, St David’s Prep had an Integrated Inspection, combining a Regulatory Compliance Inspection and an Educational Quality Inspection. The Educational Quality Inspection examines The quality of pupils’ academic and other achievements, and The quality of pupils’ personal development, and rates each one Excellent, Good, Sound or Unsatisfactory. We are delighted to report that St David’s Prep was rated ‘Excellent’ in both categories, noting that pupils of all ages develop extremely strong study skills that support learning across the curriculum and that the vast majority of parents felt that the school was successful in helping their child to develop useful skills for their future. St David’s Prep also met all compliance requirements.
