Vanguard Honours Rubber Stamp Drama Excellence

vanguard results

West Buckland has a long and enviable tradition of excellence in drama and this was emphasised with the recent release of the results from the Vanguard exams that some our pupils took part in earlier in the year.

Formerly The Poetry Vanguard, the exams are designed to encourage the love of Poetry and the Spoken Word, and students can choose to be examined on a number of subjects ranging from Poetry and Prose and Shakespeare Solo to Bible Reading and Spoken Word.

Pupils from West Buckland performed extremely well in the recent exams with Daisy Cotton and Loveday Williams achieving outstanding Honours results, which means that they achieved 90% or more.  

In addition, Flora Boyles and Amelie Preston achieved Distinctions, with scores of 85%.
