fb-pixel Inspection - Mill Hill Schools



The following quotes are taken from the recent Independent Schools Inspectorate report on Belmont. The inspectors observed lessons, conducted formal interviews with pupils and examined samples of pupils’ work. They held discussions with senior members of staff and with governors, observed a sample of extra-curricular activities that occurred during the inspection period, and attended registration sessions and assemblies. Inspectors visited the facilities for sick or injured pupils. The responses of parents and pupils to pre-inspection questionnaires were analysed, and the inspectors examined regulatory documentation made available by the school. Belmont School is very proud of the results.
