“We engaged Mungo Dunnett Associates to undertake an extremely in-depth body of research for us. In addition to the interviews conducted with 150 sets of parents, we also asked for interviews with five local school Heads (independent and maintained) and had Mungo come and deliver a detailed feedback to Governors and then to the whole Staff body on an INSET day at the start of the Summer Term. The Governors and Staff were very impressed with Mungo’s grasp of our locality and also his and his team’s understanding of the peculiarities, strengths and areas needing improving within our school. Such a report is much more helpful than an inspection report which is so sanitised these days. As a Head I now have much verbatim comment to use as encouragement with individual members of staff as well as some comments from parents which will aid reflection and review as we seek to make our school even better and also equipped to face the changing world of independent education – not least the varying types of parents who aspire to access our school”
