The King’s School Canterbury – Independent Schools Inspectorate’s Inspection 2017

23 May 2017

An experienced team of Inspectors, led by the former High Master of Manchester Grammar School, arrived in early March. Both formal and informal feedback conveyed how impressed they were with all aspects of the vibrant and busy life of The King’s School.

The very positive feedback from both parental and pupil questionnaires set the tone for a rigorous but ultimately rewarding week.

The Inspection Report consists of two strands: a Regulatory Compliance inspection and an Educational Quality inspection.

The Educational Quality report achieved two grades of ‘Excellent’ for the two key findings (the quality of the pupils’ academic and other achievements and the quality of the pupils’ personal development). The report acknowledges the progress made since the previous Inspection in 2011 and highlights the dedication of the entire teaching staff and the considerable pride that the pupils themselves hold for their school.
