Welcome to the School Inspection Service website.

On this site you will find all the school inspections reports carried out by SIS which we hope you will find informative and helpful, and give you all the information for which you are looking.

There is a separate page for each group of schools that SIS inspects. On these pages you may view the reports according to the academic year in which the inspections took place

'News' gives any recent changes to SIS, regarding inspection procedure and other relevant information

'Contact Us' tells you how you can find SIS and also how you can find the independent Complaints Adjudicator retained by SIS to investigate complaints. Please note however that the Complaints Adjudicator is not the first port of call for a complainant. The Adjudicator will not enter into a matter until the previous routes for complaints have been exhausted.

Contact Us

Here you can find contact points for both SIS itself, and the independent Complaints Adjudicator who will provide a definitive ruling on any complaints relating to inspections carried out by the School Inspection Service. You can find additional information about SIS on the DfE website, http://www.dfes.gov.uk or on the Ofsted website http://www.ofsted.gov.uk

You can contact us by email: enquiries@schoolinspectionservice.co.uk

If you wish to get in touch with the Independent Complaints Adjudicator, please contact us directly: enquiries@schoolinspectionservice.co.uk


Ofsted has today (16/11/15) published its annual report on SIS inspections for the academic year 2014- 2015. The report can be found at:


We are pleased to see that the report acknowledges the many strengths of our inspections and reports, and recommends to the Secretary of State the continued approval of the School Inspection Service. We are equally pleased to report that our new inspection handbook, which has been in use since September, had already addressed the other recommendations made by the Ofsted report.
