Types of Membership

Full Member (including full individual, group and honorary)

For Heads/Principals who wish to work with the Association to promote excellence in their schools/colleges, seeking the full benefits of membership for themselves, their staff and their pupils.

Dual Member

For Heads/Principals who recognise that belonging to ISA as well as an additional Heads’ association will offer something complementary – be it the professional development, the extra-curricular opportunities in sport, art and drama, or the additional layer of support, networking and services.

Associate (including Head/Principal of group, school, life and former member)

For those who have (or have had) management/leadership responsibility within an independent school where there is a full ISA member.

Affiliate (including UK, overseas and group)

For Heads/Principals who do not meet all the requirements for full membership of the Association but who would benefit from links with it and who would enrich the Association. The Inspection of the school stays with Ofsted.
