An independent Jewish school has received a glowing inspection report.

Immanuel College in Bushey has been rated excellent across the board following a visit by the Independent Schools Inspectorate in late June.

Some of the key findings of the report included that “the quality of the pupils’ academic and other achievements is excellent. Pupils involved in activities beyond the classroom also secure excellent achievement”.

Pupils were described as "enthusiastic and determined learners" while inspectors also noted the the quality of pupils' personal development as "excellent".

Immanuel College headmaster Gary Griffin said: "I am absolutely delighted to receive this outstanding report from the ISI, which has classified Immanuel College as "excellent" in both pupil achievement and personal development of pupils - the highest grades that ISI can award.

"This is a wonderful endorsement and a suitable reward for the hard work of the staff and pupils who impressed the inspectors with their commitment and passion. I am very proud of them all."

The Immanuel College chairs of governors, Antony Warrens and Edward Misrahi, added: "We are delighted with the ISI findings and are confident that the College is in good hands and destined for even greater progress in the months and years ahead."
