Island School Gains ‘Athlete Friendly Education Centre’ Accreditation

The World Academy of Sport has accredited Island School as an ‘Athlete Friendly Education Centre’. This is in recognition for the support given to students who compete at a high level in their sport. The accreditors have commended us for our commitment to sport, pastoral care and the academic achievement of students. With any accreditation there are suggestions on how we can further strengthen opportunities for students with sporting aptitude and together with ESF we will be working on these suggestions.

School Development Adviser at the ESF center, Chris Durbin: “I would like to thank P.E. teachers John Pennel and Angela Worthington for their work on this accreditation but also their long term commitment to excellence in sporting achievement.”
