In all 100% pupils passed, with 32% obtaining a Merit and 64% of pupils achieving a Distinction – this is a grade of 80% and above, outstanding results! A special mention to 5 of our L5th & U5th pupils, who further gained bronze medals in these exams, a fantastic attainment which in addition to evidencing their individual excellence has accrued all-important UCAS points.
Lamda has proved an immensely popular extra-curricular activity at Highclare School, allowing pupils to grow in confidence, develop their individuality and nurture relationships with pupils across year groups; It is proven to positively impact a pupils ability to participate in debates and presentation skills within other subject classes, all of which has seen a massive uptake onto the LAMDA course of recent time.
Mrs Ashley Hall, Peripatetic Speech Teacher said;
“These are fantastic results and I am delighted! In Highclare Senior School alone we have seen over a 40% increase in pupils achieving a distinction grade & a 100% pass rate, Fantastic! In Junior School over 70% of pupils achieved a distinction, outstanding results for pupils of such a young age! I look forward to celebrating these results with our pupils and continuing their LAMDA journey together. ”
