Solihull received a full inspection by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI), as part of our normal inspection cycle, in November 2019 and we are delighted to have achieved the best possible outcome. We are fully compliant and deemed to be 'excellent' in both Pupils' Academic and Other Achievements and Pupils' Personal Development. This is the highest grading achievable, thanks to the whole school community. Some headline quotes are highlighted below and a full copy of the report is available as a PDF download.
In February 2023, Solihull School welcomed two inspectors for an additional visit in relation to safeguarding. At the end of their day in school, they described the processes and procedures as “exemplary” and their report (available below in pdf format) confirms that all requirements are met.
