Stunning set of music exam results

A stunning set of results has been achieved in the ABRSM and Trinity/Guildhall music exams taken last term. With a total of 20 entries, five students gained distinctions and 12 gained merits. Particularly outstanding and nationally rare marks were achieved by sixth formers Olivia Brett (140/150) and Immy Welch (145/150) both in grade 8 singing, and Toby Matimong (146/150) for grade 8 piano. Our warmest congratulations to all the candidates.
