Super Summer Exam Results

Stoneygate School’s pupils have recently had a super crop of music exam results. The summer entries were numerous and full of incredibly pleasing marks. If I could pick out one result for special mention, it would have to be Mrs Murphy’s grade 5 singing with distinction. She was given an enormous cheer when she was presented with her certificate in assembly; all the staff and pupils recognised this fantastic achievement. I should probably mention my own grade 2 distinction for plectrum guitar. I am delighted with this mark and it has spurred me on to start learning my grade 3 pieces for an exam in the winter.

Well done to all for taking the exams and huge thanks to the teachers for preparing everyone so well. Thank you, parents, for encouraging your children to practise and listening to them throughout the process!

Please make sure that everyone continues to play and/or sing throughout the long summer break. It is an ideal time to take time to revisit some old music, go to music shops and discover new music (improving sight-reading in the process) and enjoy playing/singing without the time pressure of term-time.
