Yesterday the School held a special prize-giving assembly to celebrate students in the 1st and 2nd Year who have achieved particularly high levels of attainment or progress during the year in either their academic or artistic work.
Congratulations to all the prize-winners, listed below.
The ceremony was attended by David Bain, Chairman of the Ballet Association, who presented the Ballet Association awards. Each year the organisation generously provides bursaries for outstanding students. This year £600 bursaries were awarded to Gabrielle Beach, Yuki Sugiura and Joshua Junker respectively.
Four students also received recognition for exceptional effort in their dance training this year – the Pamela Self Award went to Sae Maeda, Albjon Gjorllaku, Kaho Yanagisawa and Joseph Sissens.
