The Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) is a Government approved inspectorate responsible for the inspection of Association independent schools. Schools in the Associations are ranked among the best in the world and at our boarding school, Saint Michael’s, we are proud to undergo regular inspections for the benefit of the pupils at our school.

We constantly seek to improve the quality and effectiveness of the education on offer at our school and the care that pupils receive whilst in our care.



We are pleased that our most recent ISI inspection recognises the work we do to ensure the welfare and safeguarding of our international students whilst they are in our care.
