Point Blank “Exceeds Expectations” in ISI Report for Fourth Consecutive Time

We are very pleased to say that for the fourth time in a row, Point Blank has gained the top grade, “exceeded expectations”, in a report from the Independent Schools Inspectorate. For those unfamiliar with the ISI, in many senses they are regarded as the Ofsted for the Independent sector so this is something we are very proud to have achieved once again! In their review, the ISI look at everything from curriculum quality and course instruction right through to student welfare and quality assurance, and Point Blank excelled in all of the aforementioned areas.

The ISI were wowed by our second studio complex in London and the facilities on offer, and praised the quality of course content provided by our instructors. Studying in such excellent surroundings is part and parcel of our comprehensive Complete Master Diploma, where you’ll learn everything you need to know to take your career to the next level. It all happens in our brand new second studio complex in London – if you haven’t had a look for yourself yet, book a tour here.
