Independent Schools Inspectorate Reports

As an independent school, we are inspected periodically by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI). Links that enable you to access the most recent reports are included below.

In September 2018, the school received a Regulatory Compliance Inspection (RCI) and was judged to be fully compliant.

 At the beginning of October 2022, the school received a Focused Compliance Inspection (FCI), along with an Educational Quality Inspection (EQI). Once again, the school was judged as being fully compliant in the FCI part of that inspection process.

 The EQI part of that process offers more detail and judgements relating to the quality of education on offer at Hulme Hall. Judgements are made regarding the quality of pupils’ academic and other achievements, as well as the quality of pupils’ personal development.

We are very pleased with the contents of this latest report and I would encourage you to click on the link to read the report for yourselves. I would also like to thank all the pupils, parents and staff who completed the various questionnaires which form part of the inspection evidence from which the inspectors make their judgements. It is very pleasing to note that feedback from each of those questionnaires was overwhelmingly positive.

The inspection team were very complementary about our pupils and below you can find some comments which are taken from the final report:

" Pupils make rapid progress in their knowledge, skills and understanding as they move through the school "

" Pupils’ self-understanding is excellent and a strength of pupils’ personal development

" Teaching demonstrates detailed knowledge of individual pupils and strong mutually respectful relationships between staff and pupils "

" Excellent outcomes in pupils’ personal development are due to the strong commitment of senior leaders, school governors and staff to providing high levels of caring and nurturing pastoral support "

" Pupils achieve well and engage strongly in the learning process, showing substantial pride in their school "

" Pupils readily make friends with each other, regardless of their point of entry, reflecting the strength of community that exists in the school "

" Pupils display strongly positive attitudes to learning, being well supported by the strong school-wide culture of respect and nurture "

" Pupils consider the tight knit community that comes from being a small school to be a real strength "

" Pupils with SEND develop their knowledge, skills and understanding particularly rapidly "

" All pupils agreed that they know how to stay safe online, and that they feel safe and secure in school "
