Drum Roll, Please! Top Music Award for Ella
Talented Sixth Form drummer Ella Grant has won a coveted Exhibition Award from Trinity College London
Talented Sixth Form musician Ella Grant has won a coveted Exhibition Award from Trinity College London for an outstanding performance in her Grade 5 Drum Kit exam. The award is given annually to the top five candidates in the UK and Ireland who gain the highest distinction marks in their music exams at Grades 5 to 8.
18-year-old Ella, who plays the drums in our School Orchestra, was presented with her award in assembly today: a beautiful hand-inscribed certificate from Trinity College and a cheque for £30. After achieving Grade 5 in 2013, Ella skipped Grade 6 and last week took her Grade 7 Drum Kit exam – again scoring a high distinction.
She said: “I really enjoy playing the drums so this Award is a great early Christmas present! It’s my aim to achieve Grade 8 before leaving Kimbolton and hopefully going on to university to study Animal Behaviour.”
