Music Tuition Continues!

Since September we have been working closely with ArtForms and YMES (Yorkshire Music Education Services) to provide music tuition online. The lessons have been incredibly successful, with 97 students committing to lessons outside of school time and to the teachers who have had to build our school's tuition into their evenings, which is hugely appreciated.

We are so proud of our students’ commitment and a number of them have taken graded exams since lockdown began, including:

• Lewis - Grade 3 - Trombone (Merit)
• Harry - Grade 8 - Drums (Merit)
• Gurman - Grade 4 - Piano (Distinction)
• Isaac - Grade 1 - Acoustic Guitar (High Merit)
• Lewis - Grade 5 - Trumpet (Merit)
• Jolyon - Grade 1 - Electric Guitar (Distinction)
• Jessica - Initial Grade - Piano (Distinction)
• Isobel - Grade 2 - Piano (Merit)
• Gabriel - Initial Grade - Piano (Merit)

Mrs Casey, Ms Gillespie and Mr Halpin would like to say a massive congratulations to all students who have taken part with the tuition, achieved grades, or are working towards grades. You are demonstrating resilience, hard work and determination. Keep up the great work!
