Excellent ISI Inspection result for Milton Abbey

A recent ISI report found that Milton Abbey is 'highly successful in achieving its aim to enable each pupil to achieve their academic potential', and the contribution of teaching throughout the School was deemed 'excellent'.

The report goes on to praise the pupils' attitudes to their work, to highlight the supportive house communities in which they live, and it rates the relationships between staff and pupils, and between pupils, as 'excellent'.  Milton Abbey's 'carefully structured and broad curriculum' was also part of the findings, and the School's sport provision, facilities and extra-curricular programme was also rated 'excellent'.  As well as the contribution of teaching being rated as 'excellent', the inspectors highlighted that 'staff work tirelessly to provide high-level pastoral care, based on a thorough knowledge of each pupil'.

Headmaster, Magnus Bashaarat, comments, "We are particularly pleased that the team of six inspectors recognised and celebrated the unique offer of a Milton Abbey education."  He continues, "That of a small school in a stunning countryside location where the quality of teaching and pastoral care are, in their words, 'excellent', enabling each pupil to fulfil their own potential."

The Independent Schools Inspectorate is the body approved by the Department of Education for the purpose of inspecting schools belonging to the Independent Schools Council (ISC) Associations and reporting on compliance with independent school regulations.  ISI inspections are also carried out under arrangements of the ISC Associations for the maintenance and improvement of the quality of their membership.
