100% of the children achieved Distinctions (the highest classification available) with four of them, Jessica Brocklebank, Alice Maxwell-Reid, Harrison Shepherd and Archie Price-Siddiqui, scoring 100%. The symmetry being only slightly diminished by the fact that one child was unwell on the day meaning that 99, rather than 100, took the exam!
The exam consisted of the pupils performing their prepared dramatic pieces, ranging from poems, excerpts from books, monologues, duologues, and mimes, for an external examiner. The ages of the children who took the exam ranged from 7 to 11.
“For 100% of the children who took the exam to gain a Distinction is a really remarkable achievement. The children worked very hard preparing their performance pieces for the exam; it’s wonderful to see their commitment rewarded so spectacularly!” said Ms Jess Lloyd, Junior School Speech and Drama teacher.
