(b)every order of an Independent Schools Tribunal or of the Secretary of State imposing or removing any disqualification under this Part of this Act:

Provided that—

(a)no independent school shall be registered if, by virtue of an order made under the provisions hereinafter contained, the proprietor is disqualified from being the proprietor of an independent school or if the school premises are disqualified from being used as a school or if the school premises are used or proposed to be used for any purpose for which they are disqualified by virtue of any such order ; and

(b)the registration of any school shall be provisional only until the Secretary of State, after the school has been inspected on his behalf under section fifty-three of this Act, gives notice to the proprietor that the registration is final.
