ISC schools' strength stems out of independence from central government and local authorities.

Freedom to choose

Independence gives schools the freedom to make the best choices for the benefit of their pupils. ISC schools are free to choose their own curriculum and qualifications, as well as structure the school day, staffing and budget as they think best.

Independent schools are involved in the development of curricula and consistently press for higher quality exam marking.

Independent schools are free to choose the teaching staff they think are best for their schools. Many teachers at ISC schools are specialists in their subjects, many having degrees or even doctorates, and are passionate about their subjects and enjoy communicating this to pupils.

Independent schools have much to offer the education sector and their ideas, culture and ethos are continually being adopted to benefit all children in this country.
