Swiss Cottage School Development and Research Centre have been rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted seven times in a row (latest report March 2023). Ofsted inspectors judged pupils’ achievement, quality of teaching, children’s behaviour and safety and leadership and management to all be outstanding but more specifically that “Leaders have established a very ambitious curriculum. It is designed to be bespoke to each pupil's needs. They make sure that these cater for pupils' differing communication and cognitive needs.”

To support the monitoring and evaluation of our overall effectiveness, Swiss Cottage School joined Challenge Partners in September 2017. Challenge Partners is a national network of schools that are involved in peer-to-peer challenge and knowledge sharing. Swiss Cottage School had its Quality Assurance Review in May 2022. The Review team involved three external professionals: an experienced Ofsted Inspector, and two experienced Senior Leaders from a special school.
