Music students pass with Distinction

Clayesmore’s musicians are celebrating a wonderful set of results in ABRSM, Trinity and LCM Musical Theatre exams taken this term. Pupils from both Prep and Senior Schools took grades from 1 – 8, with the majority achieving their passes at Merit or Distinction level. Particular congratulations go to Year 12 student, Georgia and Year 10 student Alice, both awarded Distinction their Grade 8 Singing. 

In Feruary’s Musical Theatre examinations, candidates performed two, three or four songs, depending on the grade they were sitting, from memory, with props and costumes. This is then followed by a discussion with the examiner about their performance and songs. The results were excellent, with Senior School pupils (10 candidates) receiving 1 pass, 3 merits and 6 distinction grades, and Prep School pupils (11 pupils) receiving 3 merits and 8 distinction grades. 

Music teacher Mrs Felicity Goodman, commented, “I am incredibly proud of them all, they had all worked really hard towards their exams – well done.”
