As a long-standing member of the Independent Schools Association (ISA), one of the associations making up the Independent Schools Council (ISC), Herne Hill School is regularly inspected by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI), which is approved and monitored by the Department of Education and Ofsted. The last comprehensive inspection took place during the summer term 2011, when several inspectors closely scrutinised all aspects of teaching, learning and school life at Herne Hill School. You can read their report on the ISI website. You can also read a short article about the inspection which appeared in the September 2011 issue of the local magazine Living South.
The inspectors delivered a strong endorsement of the School’s ethos, staff, curriculum, modus operandi and infrastructure. We are particularly proud of the recognition our pupils and staff received for their dedication and hard work. The inspectors repeatedly mention the children’s enthusiastic attitudes to learning and their exemplary behaviour, and the quality of teaching and of our staff was rated highly.
