2018 Independent Schools Inspectorate

We are very proud to announce that St. Crispin’s School scored full marks in every category during our inspection. Gaining full marks during our inspection is an amazing achievement; this confirms St. Crispin’s place as one of the top independent schools for inspection achievements in the country.

In all areas of the inspection St. Crispin’s School achieved full marks, which is an amazing feat. We were honoured and excited during the inspection to showcase our students’ amazing work ethic and attitude. It is rare to have an outside view on what we achieve within the school and were pleased that we could show these achievements off to their full potential to the Inspectors. The Inspectors clearly saw the vision of the school and appreciated the pupil focus and the extra lengths we go to support our students on a continual basis. St Crispin’s school has now proven itself as a leading educational facility that has the focus of the pupil at its core.

We would like to thank all the pupils, parents, and teachers, as the success of any inspection is a collective effort. Pupils contributed to the inspection outcome through their desire to work and stretch themselves to find their full potential, while teachers worked hard to encourage all pupils of all abilities and use a variety of teaching methods to engage everyone.

The Inspection clearly saw our School Ethos, that every child can realise their full potential and every child matters to us, shine through.

Kind regards,

Andrew Atkin
Head Master
