Czech Inspection Report issued

We are delighted to let you know the 2019 Czech Inspection Report is now on our website in both Czech and English. The English version has been approved by the Lead Inspector, although obviously the Czech version is definitive. Our School Council will be reviewing the report on 20th May. However, we thought it might be nice to share a couple of highlights here. You can take a look at the full report at your leisure.

The report focuses on school development, our strengths with examples of inspirational practice and then some areas for improvement. The Inspectors noticed that we have a high standard of teaching with high-quality staffing. Specifically, they spotlighted the sophisticated level of ongoing professional development of our teachers. The Inspectors commented also on other strengths. They pointed out a very high number of native-language teachers, systematic differentiation, good formative assessment, excellent IB results and a supportive and multicultural environment. In addition, the team emphasized two areas of inspirational practice. It is quite rare and it shows how impressed they were by what they saw at the English College. The team praised the depth and breadth of our co-curricular activities and our pedagogical programme for enhancing teaching and learning.

There is always room for improvement and the Inspectors suggested we could use peer assessment even more, pay systematic attention to formal language in Czech and improve the consistency of applying our classroom rules. We are excited to have done so well, but also enthusiastic about improving across all areas, especially those indicated to us in the inspection report.
