ISM Bronze Certificate
Langley Grammar School awarded certificate for GCSE outcomes in Music
Langley Grammar School has been awarded a Bronze Certificate by the Incorporated Society of Musicians. This means that more than 10% of all the school’s Year 11 students in 2016 achieved an A* to C in GCSE Music.
John Constable, Headteacher, said "This Award recognises our commitment to Music as a central part of school life. We have seen increasing numbers of students developing their interest in music through extracurricular activities and by choosing it as one of their optional subjects for GCSE. At a time when there is increasing pressure to narrow the curriculum, we believe it is important to maintain the breadth and creativity represented by the inclusion of music. Congratulations again to the students, and to our dedicated Music staff team."
Deborah Annetts, Chief Executive of the ISM – the professional body for musicians – congratulated the school, saying:
"We are delighted to recognise Langley Grammar 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 Langley Grammar School 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).
