Our latest inspection reports:

ISI (Independent Schools Inspectorate) are an independent, government-approved body, equivalent to Ofsted in the state sector, which provides objective inspections to safeguard the quality and effectiveness of the education, care and welfare of children in schools.

Sherfield School was inspected in January 2017 under the new two-part framework which focuses on i) Educational Quality and ii) Compliance.

The headline judgements fall into one of four ISI descriptors: ‘excellent’, ‘good’, ‘sound’ or ‘unsatisfactory’. The overall outcomes of Sherfield School’s inspection are as follows:   

Quality of Pupils’ Academic and other Achievements
Quality of Pupils’ Personal Development
Compliance (including National Minimum Standards for Boarding)
All standards met
EYFS (Nursery/Pre Reception/Reception class) 
This is a separate setting inspected under the framework of Ofsted, the top judgement being outstanding.

The full inspection report for Educational Quality is available here.

The full inspection report for Focused Compliance is available here.

The additional inspection report September 2017 is available here.

The Head Master of Sherfield, comments: “I am delighted by the publication of this report which reflects the hard work and sustained commitment of our staff.  This dedication extends to the core team of non-teaching staff who ensure that the school operates seamlessly in areas such as boarding, catering and cleaning. I was pleased to hear the inspectors talk so warmly about their meetings with our pupils who are the heart of our focus at Sherfield and who are also our greatest ambassadors. 
Particular mention should be made of the Nursery. This setting is registered separately under Ofsted and it has now received the highest judgement of ‘Outstanding’ in all areas for its third consecutive inspection.”
