Nick Oldham, Headmaster of Bredon School commented; “An ISI Inspection is a big deal for any school and I am delighted that all our hard work has paid off. The Inspection looks at every single area of the school from quality of education, pupil welfare, through to the standard of the school’s premises. In essence no stone is left unturned. Bredon really is a special place and all the staff are dedicated to ensuring that every pupil receives the support and education they need for their future success.”
During the Regulatory Compliance Inspection in April 2022, questionnaires were issued to pupils and parents asking for their input into the 360 degree review. A recent finding suggests that pass rates for Independent Schools have fallen from 87.9% in 2019-2022, to 80.1% last term, with NMS compliance rates for boarding schools coming out even lower. The main areas of concern often being pupils welfare, H&S leadership, curriculum and quality of education provided all featuring.
Headmaster Nick Oldham continues; “When you see the figures and Bredon’s success in these key areas it only confirms that we are on the right path. In addition our recent Wellbeing and Mental Health BSA Award only strengthens the confidence that our families have with us. This is an exciting time to be at Bredon, my main aim is to keep building on this and ensuring that we continue to flourish not only now but in the future as well.”
