October 2013- Saint Ronan’s School judged ‘excellent’ by inspectors.
After intense scrutiny, the Independent Schools Inspectorate judged Saint Ronan’s to be an ‘excellent’ school in every area, assessed during their four day visit in October 2013. In all, this meant thirteen ‘excellent’ grades.
The inspection team of seven included two current headmasters, two current deputy heads and one retired deputy headmaster.
William Trelawny-Vernon, Headmaster, said “ We are delighted with the report, which reflects extremely well on all areas of the School. Saint Ronan’s is a happy, lively and successful school, offering plenty of opportunity for all”.
The inspection Team reached the following conclusions:
The Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) arranges and carries out the inspection of any school which wishes to be accredited by the Independent Schools Council (ISC). The ISI also inspects every school whose head is already a member of the ISC.
The ISI inspects according to a standard framework for inspection, which it has laid down for the purposes of ensuring that standards are maintained and that the school complies with relevant legal requirements. This framework has been agreed with the DCSF and they have recognised the ISI as the body responsible for the regular inspection of the schools in England which are affiliated to the ISC.
