Record-breaking Speech and Drama Results

All 46 pupils who took (online) New Era Speech and Drama exams in May and June, achieved a Distinction – a 100% Distinction rate which we believe is a first for the school.

The exams included Reading, Public Speaking, Verse and Prose Speaking, Shakespeare, and Solo and Duologue Acting, and ranged in complexity from Preliminary Grade through to Grade 4.

Public speaking is a life skill and the ability to communicate clearly and concisely will stand St Faith’s pupils in very good stead in the future. Furthermore, the practical exploration of prose, poetry and plays enables pupils to elevate their understanding of the written word and therefore support their academic work.  With all this in mind we are pleased to hear such outstanding set of results.

Speech and Drama Teacher, Miss Tucker, persevered in very challenging circumstances and developed a whole new way of teaching Drama virtually.  Many congratulations to the children, who clearly worked hard to put in place the teaching points Miss Tucker gave them and who learnt new ways of performing which could be accessed and assessed online.
