Boys and girls from Highfield Prep School, part of Harrogate Ladies’ College, have achieved unprecedented success in their recent LAMDA Speech and Drama examinations.

The children achieved amazing results with a 100 per cent pass rate, including 96 distinctions and 14 merits.

All 216 children aged five to 10 took the exam under the guidance of their specialist drama teacher, Lesley Lloyd.

She said: “All the children at Highfield have weekly speech and drama lessons and they worked really hard to get ready for the exams.

“We’re delighted to have achieved such outstanding results - as are the children.”

Mrs Lloyd also runs Theatre Box, a very popular weekly drama club held at the school.

Highfield Prep School is a co-educational school for boys and girls aged four to 11. The school forms part of the Harrogate Ladies’ College schools.
