School Inspections
October 2021

In the Regulatory Compliance and Educational Quality Inspection Reports, published in October 2021, the team of school inspectors rewarded the school with a coveted ‘double Excellent’ in both key areas of educational quality:

  • The quality of the pupils’ academic and other achievements is excellent;
  • The quality of the pupils’ personal development is excellent.

During the two-day inspection by the Independent Schools Inspectorate, Westminster Under School was also found to be fully compliant with all regulations concerning quality of education, spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, welfare and health and safety, and quality of leadership and management.

Some quotes from the Inspection Report

“Pupils demonstrate high levels of achievement in the wide-ranging extra-curricular programme, including sporting, creative and academic activities.”

“Pupils demonstrate strong commitment to the school’s core values: integrity, compassion, diligence and service.”

“Pupils show great respect for each other’s cultures and backgrounds in this diverse school community.”

“Pupils make rapid progress in all subjects because they work hard in lessons, listen carefully to teachers’ guidance and use a dynamic range of resources to find things out for themselves.”

“Pupils in all year groups are articulate, expressive, confident communicators.”

“Pupils develop exceptionally strong mathematical skills as they progress through the school.”

“Pupils insightfully relate their classroom, club and societies activities to their aspirations for future success in life.”

“Pupils willingly participate in sporting activities, artistic enterprises and the intellectual challenges delivered in chess and other games. Pupils exhibit strong self-belief and are incredibly self-confident.”

“Pupils demonstrate deep appreciation of non-material aspects of life alongside a sound recognition of their own spiritual and philosophical development.”

“In school, pupils take on responsible roles as prefects, school council members and ‘doctors’ — their term for aiding others to improve achievement.”

“Pupils have an excellent understanding of how to stay safe and to keep healthy.”
