LET'S GO

If a school has been subjected to an inspection, then you will find the latest report here. In some countries schools are subject to annual inspections, while in others schools can go on a rotation and are inspected approximately every other year. Some countries (like the UK), make the frequency, at least partially dependent on performance - and schools can go 5-10 years between inspections. Before diving into any report, we advise you read this article first. It provides invaluable insights as to what to look for, and how to ‘read’ each school review so you can weigh its value and insights for your child.
