Welcome to the Independent Schools Association

Founded in 1879, the Independent Schools Association is one of the oldest of the independent schools’ organisations.  Since 2014, we have  been a registered charity and we are proud to promote our charitable objectives. ISA provides professional support to its 380+ member Headteachers. Staff of our Members’ schools benefit from high quality training opportunities and access to a wide range of membership services, while pupils enjoy an extensive programme of local and national Sporting, Arts and Cultural events. We value our reputation for offering warmth and professional, practical advice and we are delighted to offer an expanding range of member benefits.
