ISI monitoring visit report 2015

ISI Report 2015

In a recent monitoring visit, the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) maintained its previous judgement that International House London exceeds expectation.

The ISI is an approved Educational Oversight body authorised by the UK Border Agency to inspect English language schools in the UK. Their aim is to improve the quality of education on offer to international students through Tier 4 of the points based system for student visas.

Inspections are carried out every four years with monitoring visits every year in between. Inspectors observe lessons, conduct formal interviews with students and examine samples of their work. They attend registration sessions, interview senior members of staff and carry out pre-inspection surveys for staff and students.

International House London’s last full inspection was in October 2012 when it was judged to have exceeded expectations. That finding was upheld by the inspectors in a monitoring visit in 2013 and again now in 2015.

The inspectors found IH London to be excellent in the three core inspection areas: quality of curriculum, teaching and learners’ achievements, students’ welfare, including health and safety, and the effectiveness of governance, leadership and management.

Special mention in this shorter inspection was made of teaching and learning with “students receiving detailed feedback on their work… resulting in high levels of attainment”.
