A national triumph is music to the ears for an exceptionally talented flute player at The Peterborough School.
Sixth Form student Rebekah Baugh (18) received a letter at the end of March saying she had won a top award from the Associated Boards of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM).
I am thrilled Rebekah’s hard work and dedicated practice means she has gained this national recognition.Adrian Meadows
Rebekah picked up the ABRSM Laura Marco Prize after receiving the highest number of marks in the Grade 8 flute examination throughout the UK and Ireland.
Grade 8 is the highest level of difficulty for an exam.
Rebekah came out on top after receiving distinctions in the four highest grades of the ABRSM exams for flute. She had already passed the Grade 8 exams in singing and piano.
The school’s headmaster Adrian Meadows congratulated Rebekah at the school’s end of term assembly.
He said: “To gain distinction at Grade 8 in any of the ABRSM exams is an exceptional achievement but I am thrilled Rebekah’s hard work and dedicated practice means she has also gained this national recognition.”
