Hanford deemed Excellent across the board in ISI Inspection Report
Hanford School, an independent day and boarding prep school for girls based in Dorset, has been deemed ‘Excellent’ across the board following a thorough ISI (Independent Schools Inspectorate) Inspection. The inspection took place over four days in November 2022 and looked at all areas of Hanford’s educational offer, including pastoral care, the girls’ development and the school’s overall compliance against the ISI’s required standards.
Headmaster, Rory Johnston, said of the Inspection result, “To pass with such flying colours is a wonderful endorsement of the education and care that the girls receive at Hanford. The inspectors clearly saw the benefit of our approach to education, where creativity, freedom and discovery is nurtured alongside encouraging girls’ confidence and instilling a life-long love of learning.”
Inspectors reported that Hanford pupils’ “attitude to learning (were).. outstanding. They participate in lessons with notable enthusiasm” and that they were “highly perceptive and self-aware with excellent collaborative skills.”
Mr Johnston met this week with teaching and support staff at the start of the new Spring Term to feedback the results of the Inspection, saying “A successful Inspection is not a result in itself; rather it is a validation of all the wonderful work that staff and pupils do all the time.”
