School scores high inspection marks
5:00am Thursday 26th September 2013 in News
STAFF and pupils at Chard School are celebrating after receiving the results of an impressive inspection report at the end of last term.
The Independent Schools Inspectorate visited the school in June and rated the school excellent in most categories including the quality of teaching, pupils’ personal development and curricular and extra-curricular provision.
As a member of the Independent Schools Association, Chard School is regularly assessed by the inspectorate as well as OFSTED.
Head teacher Jane Bruce said: “The association’s inspection is different. I would personally say it is more vigorous. We had three inspectors here for four days.”
She added: “It is a very good support network for independent schools and gives myself and staff access to training and for the children, access to national competitions in art, music and games.”
