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.
