Our school is currently being inspected by the Independent School Inspectorate (ISI) which is one of the approved inspectorates to conduct inspections in international schools around the globe who call themselves British. First of all I would like to thank all parents, students and teachers who filled in the online questionnaires. These form a valuable source of information for the inspectors. I was glad to hear from the inspector, who gave us a short feedback on the questionnaires, that the answers were generally positive. The overall process started in July when we had an initial contact with the reporting inspector. Over the summer we worked on all the required documentation to comply with the required standards. This was then followed by a pre-inspection visit in September. There is another visit planned for November when there will be two inspectors at school for four full days. After that the school will receive an inspection report. This report will then be used to apply for the licence to operate as a British school in the Czech Republic with the Czech Ministry of Education in January 2019. Therefore, the inspection outcome and the report is really crucial for the future of the school. Despite some improvements we will have to implement before the final day of the inspection I have had a positive impression over all. It was also interesting to observe how the inspection process can actually be a positive thing for the school and something that clearly contributes to providing better education for all children. Having said that thought it is was also quite an intensive time for us and I do apologize if there have been some delays in communication or some delays in other processes.

Why should your child attend iSchool?

They will gain perfect knowledge of English.

Your child will become a global citizen with wide understanding of local and international topics.

We put a strong emphasis on the development on subject specific skills rather than on acquisition of knowledge.

Emphasis on skills development (not just memorising).

Individual approach; school’s ability to motivate for improvement.

Your child will be excited to come to school.

School philosophy

You are not buying success, you are paying for the school to monitor your child’s progress to their goals and motivate them to fulfil their potential.

We are not a selective school: we believe that everybody can be successful.
