Richard Pate School Crest

The Richard Pate School, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire


Full Inspection - Jun 2011

The school had a successful inspection by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) in June 2011. Unlike OFSTED (the Office for Standards in Education in the state sector), the ISI do not assign a single assessment to the whole school. However, since the Early Years Foundation Stage (Nursery and Reception, ages 3-5) is regulated by OFSTED, this part of the school was given a single overall assessment, and this was "Outstanding".
