King’s Ely pupils on top form in Trinity College London assessments

Posted: 10th February 2021

A total of twenty-nine students from Year 4 at King’s Ely Junior through to Year 12 at King’s Ely Sixth Form sat Trinity College London examinations in Speech and Drama, Performing Text, Musical Theatre and Acting. An impressive twenty-four Distinctions and five Merits were achieved.

Due to the current circumstances, students had to perform their examination pieces to a video camera rather than to an examiner in person, something which Matthew Cammelle, Trinity Speech and Drama Teacher at King’s Ely, is delighted did not faze them.

Mr Cammelle said: “We are thrilled with these results! This group of students was my first Trinity College London exam cohort since I started at King’s Ely in September 2020. They all did fantastically well and should be as proud of themselves as I am of them.”
