Inspection Reports

ISI Reports

Lichfield Cathedral School is delighted to have received an excellent ISI inspection report in 2016, which is testament to the inspiration, dedication and diligence of the whole school community.

Highlights include:

  • “The curriculum is excellent in its breadth and flexibility…  Pupils of all ages have highly positive attitudes to learning.  They are eager to learn, take pride in what they achieve and persevere with their tasks.”
  • “The academic achievement of pupils is significantly strengthened by their excellent achievements in extra-curricular activities…  At all stages creativity flourishes with excellent outcomes, notably in art, as observed in the excellent displays around the school, and in drama and music…  In performances both nationally and abroad, pupils achieve significant instrumental and choral successes.”
  • “The pupils’ strong spiritual development is encouraged by the Christian ethos of the school and their exploration of Christian values…  Pupils develop their individuality, becoming self-confident young people with a clear sense of their own beliefs.”
  • “In the EYFS children make an excellent start to their learning…  They demonstrate high levels of independence and concentration in their work and play…  Planning responds to children’s progress and interests which creates a bespoke, topic-based curriculum that helps children meet and often exceed the expected levels of development for their age and ability…  The curriculum is enriched by specialist teaching…  Through high expectations and sensitive support where needed, staff help children to try their best, which they were observed to do.”
