High marks for music pupils


Every pupil who took graded music exams at St Augustine’s School in Scarborough achieved high marks.

Music teacher Oliver Barron said: “Some have only been learning for just over a year so this is an amazing achievement.

“Special mention to George Griffiths who passed his grade 8 saxophone with a merit and Lewis Alder who passed his grade 8 trombone with distinction.

“Both are only 14 so this is a fantastic effort from them. I set them a target when they first arrived in year 7 and they worked hard to smash it”.
