School Commended For Exam Results

The Five Islands School

The Five Islands School has been commended for excellence in the pupils’ exam results by the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust.

Many schools now have a specialism and our school’s is arts and creativity.

The school has been singled out for the percentage of pupils achieving more than 5 A* or A grade passes in English and Maths and the pass rate has put our local students in the top 10% in the country among non selective schools.

Headteacher Bryce Wilby says this is the first time the school has been recognised by the Trust. He says this achievement won’t go unnoticed by Ofsted.

Bryce calls the result a fantastic achievement that demonstrates how much hard work has been put in by pupils and staff. He puts the success down to the staff willingness to push youngsters to achieve their potential.

They don’t let students capable of an A grade settle for a B, he says.
