January 2019 Compliance-only inspection

Abingdon School underwent a regulatory compliance inspection by the Independent Schools Inspectorate, ISI.

We are delighted to report that the inspection found that Abingdon met all the standards required and no further action is needed.

A compliance-only inspection reports on the School’s compliance with the standards set out by the Department of Education for independent schools including minimum standards for boarding.

Judgements are given either as ‘met’ or as ‘not met’ and standards were met in all the categories.

November 2015 Inspection

The pupils’ achievements and learning are excellent, as a consequence of the excellent curricular and extra-curricular provision and teaching.”

Excellence throughout the Abingdon Foundation

We are now in receipt of the Independent Schools Inspectorate, ISI, inspection reports for both Abingdon and Abingdon Prep School. They are overwhelmingly excellent and strongly endorse the very high standards of teaching and learning, the ‘Other Half’ programme and pastoral care that we offer.

Inspection may be a snapshot over a few days, but it reflects what the Foundation does over a much longer period of time and we are very proud of the independent recognition that the inspection has given us.

Warmest congratulations and thanks to all colleagues and the boys. This endorsement of the life and work of Abingdon and Abingdon Prep is thoroughly well deserved. Well done everyone!
