The Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) is the body responsible for the inspection of schools which are members of the Associations that make up the Independent Schools Council.
The ISI inspection is for the benefit of pupils and seeks to improve the quality and effectiveness of their education and of the care for their welfare.
The RGS was last inspected in November 2013; a copy of the full Inspection report is provided below.
The Good Schools Guide is an independent guide which provides a detailed, subjective insight into schools.
Schools are not able to pay to be included, rather the guide is independent in its judgements; views schools from a parent's perspective and on the basis of parental opinion; and is not influenced by academic results alone.
Based upon an extensive visit, interviews with the parent and staff body, as well as the Headmaster, and open discussions with the students, The Good Schools Guide reviewed the RGS in 2013; the full report is provided below.
