ISM Silver Certificate Marks GCSE Music Success

  • GD ISM certificate

Bolton School Girls’ Division has been awarded the Incorporated Society of Musicians (ISM)/ISM Trust’s Silver Certificate. This means that more than 15% of all the school’s GCSE students achieved an A* to C in GCSE music.

In its third year, the ISM/ISM Trust GCSE certificates recognise schools’ achievement in music and celebrates their commitment to music education shown by the high uptake and achievement of their pupils.

Headmistress Sue Hincks said: “We are delighted that the Girls’ Division Music Department is so strong. It is led by two professional musicians who are leading performers in their fields and who inspire the girls’ playing and composing.” 

Deborah Annetts, Chief Executive of the ISM – the professional body for musicians – congratulated the school, and said: ‘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 Bolton School Girls’ Division 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. The ISM is the UK’s professional body for musicians. The ISM Trust, the Incorporated Society of Musicians’ (ISM) sister charity, was created in 2014 to advance education, the arts and to promote health.
