ISI Report

ISI Report January 2020

Luckley House School underwent a full ISI inspection in January. We are delighted to announce that the report was extremely positive and highlighted several key areas of school life in which the school particularly excels. As with all these reports, there are a couple of areas for us to concentrate on developing over the coming months.

The School meets the standards in the schedule for the Education (Independent School Standards) Regulations 2014, the National Minimum Standards for Boarding Schools 2015 and associated requirement and no further action is required as a result of this inspection.

With the quality of pupils’ personal development being excellent and academic and other achievements good, the inspection highlighted the following in the report:


  • Pupils made good progress at GCSE and their results were above the national average for maintained schools.
  • The large majority of sixth form pupils are successful in gaining admission to their first or second choice university, often to competitive institutions and courses.
  • The knowledge, skills and understanding of the pupils are good and often excellent across the curriculum.
  • Pupils develop excellent communication skills.
  • Pupils of all abilities develop excellent information, communication and technology (ICT) skills across the school.
  • Pupils develop excellent study skills across the school.
  • Pupils of all ages participate and achieve well in a wide range of extension activities to support their achievement in the curriculum.
  • Pupils’ attitudes to learning are very positive throughout the school.
  • Pupils across the school are thoughtful, mature young people who understand themselves well. They are resilient in lessons, and persevere, even if they find the task difficult.
  • Pupils take responsibility for their own decisions and can consider them with self-awareness and maturity.
