Alderley Edge Festival

This year’s Alderley Edge festival of music and drama was an astonishingly successful one for the school with more pupils than ever winning awards and many being invited back to perform at the festival finalé.

The success at the festival was a fantastic return on the investment of hard work made by the pupils, under the tutelage of Miss Jessica Lloyd, herself a former Grange student. Pupils competed in a range of disciplines including Group Mime, Piano Solo, and Verse Speaking.

Siblings, Sophie and George Akka achieved 8 first place finishes between them. George won 5 trophies for Piano, Violin, Singing, Verse Speaking and Prepared Prose, whilst Sophie won 3 trophies for Violin, Singing and Drama.
