A Preparatory School musician gained a significant grading success over the Easter break.
Lucy Ranales-Griffiths, a Year 4 pupil at Rydal Penrhos, managed to come through her Grade 1 Piano theory examination with flying colours, which was administered by the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music.
The eight-year-old has been working incredibly hard under the supervision of both Prep School staff and music coaches, and this reflected in her superb distinction mark awarded by adjudicators.
She managed to achieve a sensational score of 95 out of a possible 100 marks, which saw her secure the highest mark out of those graded despite being one of the youngest sitting the assessment.
This is the latest in a long line of academic and co-curricular successes for the pupil, who recently played a huge role in the annual Year 4 play ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ over a two-night period.
Lucy will now begin working on the next stage of her progression in the hope of achieving further grading honours in the future.
Director of Music Pete Williams, said: “Lucy’s fantastic score was a thoroughly deserved one, given how much work she has put in to ensure she was fully prepared for the exam.
“Hopefully this is just the start of great things to come in the future, and we will strive to ensure her potential is realised in the coming months.”
