Manchester High School for Girls is routinely inspected by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI). This body is overseen by the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills (Ofsted).
The ISI conducted a regulatory compliance inspection of Manchester High School for Girls in September 2016 and the School was judged to be fully compliant with all of ISI’s regulatory requirements.
It is important to note that in regulatory compliance inspections, regulations are simply either ‘met’ or ‘not met’. This type of inspection does not involve quality judgements and therefore it is not possible for a report to feature descriptions such as ‘excellent’ or ‘outstanding’.
ISI is currently conducting a pilot of new educational quality inspections and it is envisaged that reports for this type of inspection will contain judgements relating to outcomes for pupils and the adjectives to which we have previously been accustomed.
If you are a parent or a prospective parent looking for a report that details these quality judgements then you may wish to visit our last standard inspection report from October 2010.
