KAS has been awarded the Incorporated Society of Musicians (ISM) Silver Certificate. This accreditation recognises our school as amongst the 15% of all the school’s whose GCSE students achieved an A* to C in GCSE music and one of the top 129 schools in England.

Deborah Annetts, Chief Executive of the ISM congratulated KAS saying: “We are delighted to recognise King Alfred School 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 King Alfred 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.”

Robert, Head commented “This achievement shows the commitment of our staff to fostering high standards in music across King Alfred School. We have a strong tradition in the music and performing arts subjects, and our pupils develop a life-long passion for music.” 

Well done to the KAS Music department on this achievement, and to all of our Music and Music Technology students who share in this success.
