The Independent Schools Inspectorate is the body responsible for the inspection of schools within the Associations that make up the Independent Schools Council. They are approved for the purpose of inspection under Section 162A of the Education Act 2002 and report to the Department for Education on the extent to which schools meet statutory requirements. ISI inspection is for the benefit of pupils and seeks to improve the quality and effectiveness of their education and of the care for their welfare.
