YOUNGSTERS from Abberley Hall School at Great Witley are celebrating a record haul of prestigious scholarships and exhibitions to leading independent schools.

Twenty-five top year pupils from a year group of 42 have won 48 different awards to a variety of top schools.

The scholarships have been awarded across a range of areas including All-rounder, Academic, Music, Drama, Art, Choral, DT and Sports.

Headteacher Will Lockett said: “I am absolutely thrilled by the success the Abberley Hall pupils have found this academic year.

“They’ve won a total of 48 scholarships, exhibitions and awards across seven disciplines and at 12 different schools.

“Our Year 8s are a talented and motivated year group with a wonderful appetite for life.

“As a departing head, the best leaving present I could have is seeing their endeavours recognised beyond this school. I am so proud of them and know they will go on to be leaders at their next schools.

“Abberley Hall takes great pride in the teaching here and in the breadth and depth of its curriculum. These all help to inspire pupils to achieve so much at a young age.”

The record total of awards has boosted the recent years’ tally to a 141 offers over the last three years.

Abberley Hall pupils have also recorded an outstanding success rate in their LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts) exams earlier this year.

100 per cent of pupils from Year 2 to Year 8 achieved high merits or distinctions.
