Singing for the Heights

Students from the 6th form, Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 have ventured for the first time into the world of graded music examinations. Working with their singing teacher Hillary Osborne and accompanied at the piano by Mr Egan,  the students completed London College of Music grade examinations from grade 2 right through to Grade 8. Music examinations at grade 6 and above are recognised nationally and provide students with additional level 2 and level 3 qualifications as well as university entry points.

Because this is a first for us (there will be more to come), Professor John Howard, Director of Examinations from London College of Music/University of West London, kindly offered to visit us and present the certificates to our students. On Tuesday, we held a recital of the students work followed by a presentation ceremony where certificates were presented to students by Professor John Howard and Mr Heritage.

Suffice to say, professor Howard was extremely impressed with the students' performance and was delighted to present the certificates to the students. He reminded students of the importance of celebrating their achievements in music and the positive benefits music can bring to the rest of their lives.
