Following our inspection in November 2019, the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) report is here to review; it highlights all that is special about Northampton High School for Girls.

This report reiterates our compliance with the Independent School Standards Regulations and clearly states that we have achieved the highest grade – ‘Excellent’ – in both categories of the Educational Quality Inspection:

‘Excellent’ for the quality of pupils’ academic and other achievements


‘Excellent’ for the quality of pupils’ personal development

The updated report can be found here.


“The quality of pupils’ academic and other achievements is excellent.”

“The quality of pupils’ personal development is excellent.”

“Pupils throughout the school demonstrate a high level of self-understanding, self-confidence, self-discipline and resilience.”

“Pupils achieve high levels of success in a wide range of extra-curricular activities.”

In February 2017, the ISI conducted a Regulatory Compliance Inspection, focused on regulatory matters such as health and safety and the welfare of pupils. The report simply states whether the requirements have been met or not. We were pleased to have met all standards across all areas reviewed.
