ISM GCSE Gold Black

Music Department ISM Gold Award: The Music Department has been awarded a gold award from the Incorporated Society of Musicians for their GCSE work.

Last year over 20% of the cohort took GCSE music, making us one of only 87 schools in the country to have so many pupils studying music at GCSE. This includes the 4 specialist music schools as well as top independent schools which have a clear focus on music. Including these specialist schools we were ranked 19th in the country for the music results. It is wonderful to have such a flourishing Music Department and it reflects well that the value of studying the arts at GCSE is understood. Congratulations to Ellie Lane and her Music Department on receiving this impressive award.
