Inspection Reports

Inspection reports provided by the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills (OFSTED) and the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) are completely independent and unbiased. Due to their rigorous assessment and thorough inspection process, these impartial reports are the only independent metric used by parents and students to judge the overall quality of schools in quality of teaching, student progress, pastoral care, leadership and governance, child welfare and safety and student’s moral, social and cultural development.

MPW Group is delighted to be the only education group in England where all the colleges in the group have achieved the highest rating in all the areas of their respective inspection reports.
