Year 11 students across the country have been finding out how they got on today in their GCSE exams and the staff of the Five Islands School are "delighted" with the achievements of their year 11 pupils.

Head of School, Mrs Jo Yeates said in statement; "Staff at Five Islands School are delighted with the achievements of their Year 11 students. A year of tremendous hard work from students, ably supported by family and staff, has paid off; with the majority of students having secured the results they needed in order to progress onto the next stage of their education and pursue their chosen course."

Mrs Yeates added: "GCSEs in English Language, English Literature and Mathematics have been graded using a brand new 9-1 grading system this year, so it is impossible to make meaningful comparisons with previous results. However, it is fantastic that out of the 19 students in Year 11, 15 achieved a "strong pass" in English and 16 in Mathematics. One student even secured a coveted grade 9 in Mathematics! We wish all of our students every success in their future studies."

The team at Radio Scilly would like to pass along their congratulations and well wishes to all the students from the Five Islands School who have receive their results today, and we wish them all the very best in their future endeavours.
