Tuesday, 18 April 2017
Kesteven & Grantham Girls’ School has been awarded the ISM / ISM Trust’s Bronze Certificate. This means that more than 10% of all the school’s GCSE students achieved an A* to C in GCSE music.
Deborah Annetts, Chief Executive of the ISM – the professional body for musicians – congratulated the school, saying:
‘We are delighted to recognise Kesteven & Grantham Girls’ School’s achievement in music and celebrate the commitment to music education shown by the school in their high uptake and high achievement of pupils’.
‘Music is a valuable subject, it brings value in itself to pupils as well as supporting achievement in other subjects. Music also opens doors and generates educational opportunities for pupils from all backgrounds. We are delighted that KGGS values music within their school curriculum and 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) and the ISM Trust (www.ismtrust.org).
