An article in The Sunday Times (07/05/17) highlighted the benefits of learning and performing poetry. Supported by Amanda Spielman, HM Chief Inspector of Education, Children's Services and Skills, poetry is seen as a key element of cultural knowledge that pupils should have in order to be successful.
At CLSG we have been performing and presenting poetry for a number of years, continuing to gain outstanding results in the examinations conducted by the London Academy of Museum and Dramatic Art; the latest batch is no exception. Lower Two pupils have achieved a 100% Pass rate with 87% gaining Distinction and 13% Merit. What is even more remarkable, and in keeping with past results, this has been happened through the pupils’ commitment and hard work during their break times and for homework. We offer them our congratulations and a big well done.
