Loud and Proud!

We love sharing your news and achievements with pupils and parents, please keep sending them in! If your child has achieved something new, or has a special hobby they’d like to talk to us about, please send in your certificates/work/awards and any pictures to Miss Wilson in the School Office.

This week, we’ve been speaking to several pupils about what they’ve been doing outside of school, and here are just a few we’d like to share.


Quentin in Form 4 has had a busy few weeks with his dancing! He passed his recent Tap and Modern exam with a Merit, with only a couple of points off a Distinction! He is now Grade 2 in Tap and Modern. Fantastic news!

Georgie in Form 3 was awarded Grade 1 Ballet with Distinction, Grade 1 Modern with Distinction and Grade 1 Tap with Merit in her Dance exams. Georgie has also won a scholarship to the Northern Dance Centre Summer School next year! A very big well done to Georgie!


Evie in Form 6 has won a place in the Children’s Chorus of Opera North. The Children’s Chorus provides boys and girls aged 8–13 from across the North of England with exciting opportunities to further their musical education and talent through the support of a professional opera company. Evie blew us all away with her gorgeous singing voice earlier this year when she played the Fairy Godmother in the KS2 production.


Bea in Form 5 has passed her Grade 2 Violin exam with a Merit. Daniel, also in Form 5, has passed his Grade 1 Piano exam. Daniel and Bea are both members of the KS2 Ensemble.

We can’t wait to hear more of your performances throughout the year at our regular assemblies and events! Well done!

You are a very talented bunch, and we hope you are very proud of your achievements!
