An impressive 99 out of 99 pupils at Hartford’s Grange Junior School were rewarded with a distinction after sitting speech and drama examinations recently.
One hundred per cent of the children achieved the distinctions with four of them - Jessica Brocklebank, Alice Maxwell-Reid, Harrison Shepherd and Archie Price-Siddiqui - scoring 100%.
The external exam consisted of the pupils performing their prepared dramatic pieces, ranging from poems, excerpts from books, monologues, duologues, and mimes, for an external examiner. The ages of the children who took the exam ranged from seven to 11.
Jess Lloyd, junior school speech and drama teacher, said: “For 100% of the children who took the exam to gain a distinction is a really remarkable achievement.
“The children worked so hard preparing their performance pieces for the exam, so it’s wonderful to see their commitment rewarded so spectacularly.”
