Students Attain 100% Pass Rate

Eleven students aged between seven and ten from Holy Trinity School in Kidderminster are celebrating after securing a 100% pass rate in their recent Trinity College of Music recorder examinations. Music teacher, Mrs Sarah Roberts said: “I am delighted for each and every one of my students. They have all worked incredibly hard. “Amongst the passes were seven Distinctions and three Merits, with one student, Isabella achieving an astonishing 100%; a quite exceptional achievement.” Music has always been integral to the curriculum at Holy Trinity, which has a long tradition of music-making. It boasts both senior and prep school choirs, who perform in a variety of genres covering musical theatre, sacred, secular and pop. Mrs Roberts added: “The recorder exam required the children to learn three pieces, play scales and arpeggios, complete an aural test and be able to sight-read music they had never previously seen before. They were well prepared and took it all in their stride.” Holy Trinity School recently secured EMI funding which has enabled them to purchase additional bass, treble and tenor recorders, and which are now being put through their musical paces by the school’s students.
