Pupils at a borough school are celebrating receiving top grades in their music exams.

In the first round of The Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music examinations held since new academy Kings Priory School opened in September 2013, pupils are celebrating following a bumper crop of top grades.

A total of 32 pupils were entered for examinations from Grade 1 – 8, gaining a 100 per cent pass rate including 11 distinctions and 16 merits.

Director of music, Philip Sanderson, said: “As a school with a music specialism, Kings Priory School pupils are encouraged to participate in music as much as possible throughout the First, Middle and Senior Schools.

“These results clearly show the talent of our pupils and how they are nurtured from the beginning to Grade 8 and beyond through the commitment and dedication of our staff.

“Our sincere congratulations go to all pupils and we look forward to supporting them as they move into the next stages of their musical education.”
