Celebrating success in Speech and Drama exams

Speech and Drama is hugely popular at Downe House with around three hundred girls electing to take group and solo lessons each year working towards appropriate Trinity College London awards in Speech and Drama, Musical Theatre and Communication Skills.

6 June 2019

In the latest series of Trinity College London Speech and Drama examinations, 64% of girls who took an exam achieved a distinction, 25% of girls achieved a merit and 33 girls achieved the scores of 90/100 or higher. In Communications Skills, all girls received a Merit or a Distinction in their respective exams with two Upper Sixth girls, Nina and Naomi achieving a Grade 8 Distinction.

Special congratulations go to Upper Sixth Form girl, Cece who not only scored an incredible 93/100 in her Grade 8 Musical Theatre Solo exam but also got 95/100 in her Musical Theatre Pairs exam. Two Upper Fifth girls, Chrissie and Tabitha achieved a tremendous score of 96/100 in their Grade 6 Musical Theatre Pairs examination and afterwards, the Examiner commented to a teacher that, “the future of musical theatre is safe!”.

Head of Extra-Curricular Drama, Mrs Rebecca Watson said, “We are absolutely thrilled with this set of results and so proud of all the girls who have worked so hard and thoroughly deserve their success. Speech and Drama has gone from strength to strength at Downe House because it offers such a range of opportunities and skills from the joy of performing to an appreciation and understanding of literature and the spoken word, as well as technical skills such as clear articulation and breath control. On behalf of all the Speech and Drama teaching staff, I would like to offer my congratulations to all the girls!”
