Oscar grade results for RGS Drama students
Two RGS students, Harriet T and Camille DB, who played the star roles as Miss Adelaide and Sarah Brown in RGS Drama’s exceptional production Guys and Dolls, have secured a combined total of 4 A* and 3 A grades in their A Levels. Both girls were offered their first choice universities; Hatty will be going to Durham to study English Literature and Camille will study Medicine at the University of Birmingham.
Together with Hatty, earlier this year Isobel R co-wrote and presented RGS Drama’s Back to the 80s production which saw students performing 1980’s songs, sketches and dances in an hilarious and nostalgic cabaret performance. Isobel secured 2 A*s and an A and is off to study Philosophy and Theology at the University of Exeter.
I’m elated! Sad to be leaving but very excited for the next step. I’ll always be part of the Drama department and will come back for all the shows. I’m definitely going to continue being part of musicals and shows at Birmingham.
Mrs Du Buisson said,
An amazing morning to wrap up the exciting, challenging and rewarding years at RGS. What incredible opportunities the school has given the students to indulge in extra-curricular activities such as music and drama.
Goya V, another budding RGS drama student, also secured top results in her A Levels with 2 A*s and an A. Goya played the lead character in a ground breaking national campaign, Tech Control, led by HMC which aims to combat digital addiction among young people. The video has almost 20,000 hits on YouTube and has been shared with every independent school in the country as part of HMC’s aim to promote wellbeing and digital awareness to today’s young people. Goya leaves RGS to study Classics at Durham in September.
I am thrilled with my results! I only started Latin in the Third Form (Year 9) and now I will be studying it at university. The teachers prepared us brilliantly for the exams and I am so looking forward to student life at Durham.
