St Augustine’s School has been awarded a Gold certificate by the Incorporated Society of Musicians (ISM).
The award certifies that more than 20% of students taking GCSE Music achieved A*- C in the subject in 2016. This puts the school in the top 76 schools across England. Deborah Annetts, Chief Executive of the Incorporated Society of Musicians said:
‘We are delighted to honour St Augustine’s School and celebrate their high-standard of music education. Music is a hugely important subject and we are pleased that it is valued as a vital part of the curriculum in this school. Music in itself brings huge value and benefits to pupils – it supports learning in other subjects, generates educational opportunities and brings a sense of community to school life. As the professional body for musicians and a subject association for music education, we are delighted to recognise this high level of achievement with this certificate.’
The certificate is awarded by the Incorporated Society of Musicians (ISM), supported by the ISM Trust (www.ismtrust.org)
