TAL­ENTED pupils are jump­ing for joy af­ter scor­ing top marks in a na­tional exam.

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SCHOOLS -

Pupils at Har­monys School of Dance and Per­form­ing Arts, based in Che­sham, took their most re­cent exams with the The Bri­tish As­so­ci­a­tion of Teach­ers of Danc­ing (BATD), the long­est run­ning dance as­so­ci­a­tion in the UK. Re­sults were ‘out­stand­ing’ with 160 out of 200 exams taken re­ceiv­ing top marks. Prin­ci­pal Har­mony-Jayne O’Quinn said: “We at Har­monys pride our­selves with high stan­dards and ded­i­cate our lives to pro­duc­ing stu­dents to a pro­fes­sional level that al­lows them to have very suc­cess­ful ca­reers in the in­dus­try.”

Some 16 pupils were left stunned when they re­ceived a let­ter from the BATD stat­ing that the ex­am­iner had nom­i­nated them for a BATD Schol­ar­ship. Candice Bryant, Am­ber Davies, Han­nah Pet­tit, Elysha Dal­ton, Zara Tames, Mad­disen Eggle­ton, Caitlin Deb­bage, Latisha Chap­man, Katie-Leigh Bir­kett, Iso­bel Snow­don, Leon Chap­man, Scar­lett Deb­bage, Lucy Purser, Bil­lie Fisher, Hay­ley Wil­son and Lu­cie Bolden will all be mak­ing their way to Glas­gow to com­pete for the ti­tle.

All smiles: Just some of the dance stu­dents who were suc­cess­ful in their exams
