'The outcomes for children are outstanding'.

As a member of the Independent Schools Association (ISA) we are inspected by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) rather than OFSTED.  The two bodies work closely together.


St Petroc’s School, the only Independent school in Bude, has been graded

'outstanding in all areas'

following a recent inspection by the Independent School’s Inspectorate of its Early Years and Prep School and is fully compliant in all areas.  Inspectors commentated that the parent survey results were possibly the highest that they had ever seen. For the school, that has been providing education in Bude for 106 years, this is an excellent achievement following significant investments in updating and improving facilities.
