The ISA offers consultancy at competitive rates to its member schools and across the sector. We have a growing list of experienced consultants who offer advice on all aspects of school leadership and operation, including compliance, preparation for inspection, curriculum, school development planning, SEN(D), EYFS provision and boarding.

Please note that schools should contact a chosen consultant directly from the details provided: all arrangements are made directly with your consultant.

Consultants featured on our website offer low rates for their work with ISA schools, and the following are indicative:                     Half day: £200                           Full day: £400

These may vary depending on the nature of the work to be undertaken and degree of preparation. Consultants will invoice schools directly, including travel and any agreed subsistence costs.
