Ofsted Reports

As we only launched the Stephen Perse Nurseries in 2019, we do not yet have any inspection reports available. We will add them to this page as they happen.

In the meantime, we continue to celebrate our 2014 Integrated Inspection in which ISI inspectors judged the quality of achievement and learning to be “exceptional” across the Foundation.

The “exceptional” rating was rarely awarded and placed us amongst the 5% of schools to achieve it. In all other areas – pastoral, academic, extra-curricular, leadership and governance – we were deemed to be “excellent”, the highest grade available from ISI for these areas.

“From the Early Years Foundation Stage onwards, pupils of all abilities and needs are highly successful in their learning and personal development. The school fully meets its aim to provide a dynamic and exciting learning environment which allows pupils to excel and prepare for their place in an increasingly international world.”


“Learning habits such as resilience, collaboration and curiosity are skilfully incorporated into all activities, equipping children for problem solving, stimulating creativity and critical thinking and preparing children exceptionally well for the next stage in their learning.”


“Cultural diversity helps to make the school a rich and fulfilling environment for its pupils.”


“The quality of links between the school and parents is excellent and strongly supports the school’s aims.”


“Pupils achieve at a high level and make excellent progress… They develop an enjoyment for learning … Pupils feel motivated and enthusiastic.”


“The exceptional educational experience provided is a result of a strong shared vision of what the future might hold for the young people of today and the education needed to support this.”
