MORPETH music students have hit the right note for exam success to form a straight-A octet.
Eight pupils at King Edward VI School have gained top grades in their music A-Level, with A* or A marks.
Among them was well known local performer Charlotte Christensen, who with her total exam haul of an A* and two A grades has gained a place at the Royal Northern College of Music to take vocal studies.
She said: “This is just what I wanted.
“I would love to be on the stage professionally one day and perform in the West End.”
Another of the successful students was Charlie Trotter, who gained an A* and two A grades in total, but he plans to take less of a musical path and continue his studies in political and social sciences at York.
“The subject may seem boring, but it has been my passion for years,” he said.
“My nerves kept me up all night waiting for the results and it is such a relief to get them and know I don’t have to take my insurance university offer or go through clearing.”
The other members of the music A team are Charlotte Kennedy, Richard Pinkstone, Ivan Scutt, Beverley Logan, Bridie Bloor and Sid Wright.
Music teacher Robin Forbes is hoping for a repeat of the success next year as his entire Year 12 music class have all notched up A grades at AS-Level.
