It gives me huge pleasure to start 2023 by sending you the exceptional results of our recent Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) inspection. This was a 3 day inspection with 5 regulatory inspectors evaluating the quality of education as well as our compliance across the nursery and school. I am delighted to say we received the following:

Quality of pupils academic and other achievements is EXCELLENT

Quality of pupils personal development is EXCELLENT

Quality and standards of the Early Years Foundation Stage is OUTSTANDING

Regulatory compliance standards: MET ALL STANDARDS

This is simply the highest score a school can receive in such an inspection. The outcome is a testament to the outstanding leadership and vision of our Principal, Mr Richard Settle. It is also a reflection of the superb senior leadership teams and staff body within each of our sites who work tirelessly to ensure the school is the very best it can be. Their professionalism, dedication and care for young people is simply nothing short of excellent.

I am pleased to see that the report demonstrates the acedemic progress and breadth of curriculum and acivities the pupil take part in as well the strong pastoral development. Examples of our values of a) the broad and deep worth of every person, b) intellectual curiosity, c) practical kindness, d) personal pride and dignity and d) a community of fun and energy chime loudly through the findings. Many congratulations to the pupils and staff at Sancton Wood.

I am very grateful for your continued support and it is this partnership that makes the Sancton Wood family so special. I wish you and your families a happy, healthy and harmonious new year.

Aatif Hassan, Founder and Chairman of Dukes Education
