Islands’ Youngsters Await GCSE Results

New Five Islands School, due to open in September

Nineteen islands’ youngsters will find out their GCSE results today.

Head teacher Bryce Wilby is expecting around a dozen staff to be there for the pupils as they open their results envelopes.

The School has always been at the top of the national league table for grades but the small number of pupils taking the exams can often lead to what looks like wide variations on performance year–on–year. One pupil achieving an exceptional result can bring a 5% change in the average figures.
