School Education Audit

Education for a Better World

Education Quality Audit

The Hearth’s School Education Audit is a participative process that provides a detailed analysis of the present situation at a school and guides further development of the institution. The audit enables schools to identify their vision, evolve, and achieve their aspirations while benchmarking them against national and international standards.


The Process

The process is participative, and the school education audit begins with meeting stakeholders to discuss and clarify expectations from the audit.

The audit itself follows a two-stage process. The first step is a review of the school’s documents, examining the school’s recent performance against standards, and surveying stakeholders to elicit their opinion about the school. At the next step, our team will have a more detailed audit visit (on-site or virtual) to look at the processes and practices of the school. This stage will include focus group discussions, observations and ideation meetings.


The Models of Engagement

Schools differ, and our education audit process has been designed to reflect the standard and unique characteristics of institutions. Therefore, we have a core offering (common to all schools) and a differentiated offering (which depends on the kind of school and what the institution wants out of the audit process).


The Core Domains include:

  • Governance
  • Leadership in the School
  • Ethos and Values
  • Learning and Teaching
  • Extra-Curricular, Enrichment and Engagement
  • Student Welfare


Optional add-on domains include:

  • Facilities (*possible only during on-site visits)
  • Boarding (Day-boarding and boarding schools)
  • Teacher Welfare and Development
  • IT Department and IT Policy
  • Safety
  • NEP Compliance
  • Post Covid-19 Audit
  • Special Education Programme
