An excellent Ofsted report has brought Christmas early to a specialist Islington school, following their best ever exam results earlier this year.

Islington Arts and Media school (IAMS) is the first Islington school to be checked over under new Ofsted rules, with their teaching and student achievement coming out on top.

Head teacher Diana Osagie said: “We are delighted with the news that IAMS has been rated a ‘good’ school and our hard work and achievement has been recognised by Inspectors. This is an incredibly exciting time for IAMS as we continue to excel across all areas on our journey to outstanding.”

“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank our students, staff and parents for their continued commitment and support.”

The school achieved ‘good’ ratings in every category, but missed out on an ‘outstanding’ rating because “there is variability in how well students

achieve across different subjects.”

In 2013’s summer exam season, a record 63 per cent of students achieved 5 or more A*-C grades at GCSE, including English and Maths, a 21 per cent increase from last year.
