The road to accreditation: In May of 2019, the school hosted a successful preparatory visit by a team from the Council of International Schools (CIS).There were many commendations and the school will work in the recommendations ready for the full accreditation visit in 2020. Due to the restrictions of Covid 19, we will have a virtual visit for our re-accreditation from August 24th - 26th . The CIS review will be combined with the Department for Education External Review. term 3 of this year, families, students, teachers and past students will be invited to contribute to our school improvement by completing a CIS survey. Our work over the next year will be guided by these responses. What follows the accreditation? Following our successful CIS accreditation in 2015, we are working on updating our accreditation documentation under the 9 new Domains of:
