Independent Co-Educational Day School
We are very proud to report that Leehurst Swan was found compliant in all components of the inspection, which included an examination of the following areas of the school:
Highlights of the inspection report included:
GCSE performances (for years 2017-2019) were reported to be ‘above the national average for maintained schools’. Inspectors stated that our ‘teaching enables pupils to make good progress, encompasses effective behaviour management and is supported by suitable resources’.
The report also commented that at Leehurst Swan’s principles and values are actively promoted which facilitate the personal development of pupils as responsible, tolerant, law-abiding citizens’. The new leadership and management of the School were also commended for ‘fulfilling their responsibilities effectively so that other standards are consistently met as they promote the well-being of their pupils.’
Mr Ayres remarked that: "We are extremely proud of the results and comments from ISI, and it is a significant achievement to pass as compliant in all areas of this rigorous inspection. I would like to take this opportunity to thank my colleagues here at Leehurst for their continued hard work and support. I would also like to thank pupils and parents for their continued support, and for taking the time to complete the ISI questionnaire; all responses were considered by the Inspection team, and will continue to form part of our plans for the future, a shared vision, with pupils at the heart of everything we do here at Leehurst Swan, to ensure that we continue to be the ‘best version of ourselves’."
In March 2017 Leehurst Swan was awarded top marks by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI), the body approved by the Department of Education for inspecting schools belonging to the Independent Schools Council (ISC).
ISI inspections cover two areas of educational provision: Educational Quality and Compliance. The school was inspected in both categories and achieved the grade of ‘Excellent’ in every category of Educational Quality. Within the Early Years setting, the school was graded ‘Outstanding’. Both grades are the highest possible outcomes achievable.
The inspectors found the school to be fully compliant in regards to all regulations.
