Last term three of our music pupils, taught by Stewart Smith, took the new Trinity College of Music Digital Exams. The new performance exam was recorded on video and marked by external Trinity examiners.
Jessie Dayton (Year 10) gained a Grade 3 Distinction in piano, Charlotte Potter (Year 10) gained a Grade 4 Merit in piano, and Sophie Jones (Year 12) a Grade 8 Merit in singing. These excellent results are a reflection of their hard work and dedication.
Deputy Head Boy and Music Scholar Henry Smith (Year 13) has gained a distinction in grade 8 Tuba (ABRSM). This is his third grade 8 success, already having achieved a grade 8 in Singing, and in Piano. Henry is a member of the Junior Royal Northern College of Music Saturday School which provides expert tuition and specialist training for children with exceptional musical ability.
