Marvellous Music Exam Results

I am absolutely delighted to announce the latest exam results that we have received.

 Practical

  • Caitlin M – grade 1 piano, distinction
  • Hattie T – grade 2 piano, pass
  • Archie F – grade 2 guitar, merit
  • Antonia V – grade 3 keyboard, distinction
  • Mrs Ashwin – grade 3 guitar, distinction
  • Will J – grade 4 Rockschool vocals, distinction
  • Freya A – grade 5 saxophone, distinction

Music Theory

  • Gracie F – grade 4, pass
  • Caitlin M – grade 4 pass
  • Freya A – grade 4, merit
  • Georgina T – grade 4, merit
  • Antonia V – grade 4, merit
  • Emma D – grade 5, merit

I must highlight the amazing result of Emma D. To pass grade 5 Music Theory at the start of Year 5 is a huge achievement. It is a very demanding exam and to have amassed all this knowledge at such a young age is very impressive. Emma only started working on her Music Theory books at the start of 2014. Her hard work, determination and musical talent culminated in this super result.

Carol Service Videos

Carol Service Spectacular

Huge thanks to all for a superb Carol Service. It was a big team effort and so many people worked incredibly hard to pull it all together.

The different elements all had a special role to play. The Year 8 readers read with poise, confidence and beautiful clarity. It was lovely to introduce our Junior Orchestra alongside the Senior Orchestra, who played delightfully. The samba kit had its first performance with a great team of Year 7 players. The drumline was a key feature of the Carol Service this year and they played with such style. The Junior Choir sang ever so well and remembered their moves and words. The Senior Choir made a superb sound and performed at their best. The school singing as a whole was something really special. This massed sound, where everyone contributes is so important and should reflect how we feel about our school community and the wider community: individual effort improving the result and outcome for everyone. I should also mention the contribution of the congregation in their singing of the carols. Thank you so much for singing with the children. It is important for them to know that music is something for everyone at every point in their lives. IMG_6164 IMG_6155 (2) IMG_6158 IMG_6147 IMG_6181   Mrs Ashwin

Four Stoneygate Girls Gain County Hockey Selection

Four Stoneygate Girls gain County Hockey Selection.

The following girls have just heard that they have been selected to join the Leicestershire County Hockey Squad. Lara P, Fran J, Hattie S (all Year 8) and Gracie F (Year 7) heard the news following their recent trails. This is a great achievement that they fully deserve as they put in many hours of training both in and out of school. The girls should be extremely proud of themselves.

All three Year 8 girls are currently applying for sports scholarships to their next school. We wish them all good luck for those.
