Dean Close Prep School is celebrating yet another fantastic year of exam results, both musical and dramatic.

There were 42 entries for the ABRSM music exams, from flute to double bass to drumming, and pupils once again excelled. Extraordinarily, all those taking Grade 4 or above received a merit or distinction and all those taking Grade 6 achieved a distinction.  In addition, there were four drumming candidates taking the Rock School Exam and every one of them received a distinction for their performances as well.   

In the LAMDA Speech & Drama exams, this was the first time that Year 2 Pre-Prep pupils were entered, and combined with the Prep School candidates, they managed to beat last year's record-breaking results by quite some margin.  LAMDA results as follows -

              2011                2012 including pre-prep         2012 excluding pre-prep

Distinction             55                             90                                             80

Merit                      39                             46                                             35

Pass                      09                             02                                             02


This is another astonishing set of results which not only are testament to the hard work of pupils and their teachers, but also serve as proof that Dean Close is more than upholding its reputation as the best school in Gloucestershire for Music and Drama.
