Essex pupils break school record

FELSTED Preparatory School year four pupils have achieved record results in their recent English Speaking Board examinations.

Not only did every child pass, but 80 per cent gained a merit plus or distinction grade.

Head of year Chris Lee said: “Over the first half term we worked towards these examinations as part of our English curriculum.

“The aim of this is to develop essential life skills which enable pupils to present confidently to a public audience. I am thrilled with the results which is a testament to their continued hard work.

“These are the best results to date in this public examination in which we already have a superb track record and the children should be immensely proud of their effort and congratulated on this fantastic achievement.”
