Inspection Reports

North Bridge House Nursery & Pre-Prep Schools Inspection Reports.

All North Bridge House Schools focus on delivering a broad and innovative curriculum taught by specialist teachers. We are committed to the personal development of our pupils and, as such, provide an outstanding social, moral, spiritual and cultural programme, which we incorporate into all aspects of school life.

Each North Bridge House School is inspected on an individual basis. North Bridge House Nursery & Pre-Prep Schools were previously inspected by SIS (School Inspection Service) and are now inspected by ISI (Independent Schools Inspectorate) going forwards. Please find the schools’ most recent inspection reports below.

Follow the link for the Independent School Standard Regulations – used by independent schools as a basis for their professional standards – to see the criteria on which a school will be judged for an inspection.
