Special music awards

10 October 2018

A distinction tie for music is the highest award a pupil can get. There are various criteria required to achieve this. 2 matrics have achieved this honour: Tom Janisch achieved a distinction for his flute grade 8 exam as well as a mark above 80% for his singing grade 8 exam. Kamal Sacranie achieved a distinction for his singing grade 8 exam. He then sang an ARSM exam, which is a grade higher than grade 8 and achieved a distinction for this exam. Based on these results, both boys are awarded a distinction tie. Special mention must be made of Michael Wilson-Trollip: Last year he achieved a distinction tie as he got distinction for both his piano and singing grade 8 exams. This year he played a further two grade 8 exams - he achieved 85% for his oboe exam and a distinction for his organ exam. Obtaining four grade 8 exams on 4 different instruments has never been achieved by a music pupil in the history of Bishops. This is a phenomenal achievement.
