Hallfield School are delighted to announce the glowing results from the full ISI Inspection, which took place 12 – 14th February. The report included both a Regulatory Compliance Inspection and an Educational Quality Inspection. The key findings were as follows:
The quality of the pupils’ academic achievements was judged “Excellent”. A high proportion of pupils are successful in obtaining scholarships, make rapid progress and use their excellent academic skills effectively.
The quality of pupils’ personal development was judged “Excellent”.

The rating Excellent is the highest possible grade an independent school can achieve. Hallfield School was fully compliant with all of the Independent Schools Standards Regulations.
Upon receiving the outcome, Mr Morrow stated “I am delighted that Hallfield has achieved the highest accolade possible. A huge thank you to all the staff involved for their tremendous hard work in securing these ‘excellent’ outcomes. My thanks also to our parent body who responded so positively to the questionnaires and, of course, to our pupils who were articulate and impeccable at all times.”
