Last term’s ballet results came in and were very impressive, with all sixty pupils gaining a merit or above.
Particularly noteworthy achievements came from Poppy Evans (Distinction Primary) Elspeth Dunk and Nancy Allen (Distinction Grade 1) Amelie Barrasso and Jorja Swain (Distinction Grade 2) Xander Cooke and Jade Cox (Distinction Grade 3). Hester Baird, Bethan Clark, Sophie Harvey, Cliodhna Burke and Emily Boswall all passed their Intermediate ballet exam, the first of the RAD’s professional level examinations, Emily with Distinction.
There was a set of ballet exams on November 17th and 18th which included our first ever set of Grade 4 and 5 pupils taking the new RAD syllabus. They have worked very hard to perfect the new syllabus which is much more complexthan the old one. Results are due mid January and will be published in the Spring term newsletter. Thank you to Miss Lesley for all her hard work in preparing the students for the exams.
