Introduction to Welsh Independent Schools Council

The Welsh Independent Schools Council (WISC ) is the umbrella body representing Independent schools in Wales.  The majority of children in Welsh independent schools are in WISC schools.  WISC therefore speaks for the sector as a whole.  WISC is strictly independent of all political parties.

An independent school is a school that is independent in its finances and governance; it is not dependent upon national or local government for financing its operations nor reliant on taxpayer contributions, and is instead funded by a combination of tuition charges, gifts, and in some cases the investment yield of an endowment.  It is governed by a board of directors that is elected by an independent means and a system of governance that ensures its independent operation.  By virtue of being independent, Independent schools offer a high quality of education within a framework where the focus is on the development and care of the individual.  Pupils are encouraged to develop to their full potential, to participate in a wide range of activities within the school and to contribute to service in the wider community.  Independent schools are inspected by Estyn Independent schools in Wales offer a high quality of education within a framework where the focus is on the development and care of the individual.
