St Peter’s Pupil, Emily, is Abso-flute-ly Amazing!

Posted: 10th February 2022

Emily, a Sixth Form pupil at St Peter’s School, York, has achieved an LTCL advanced diploma in flute performance, with distinction.

This is the first time a pupil at St Peter’s has achieved a licentiate diploma, which is designed as part of the examination process for third-year undergraduate pupils at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in London.

Emily’s outstanding achievement is the result of an intense and sustained period of work on concert repertoire over the past year.

Emily said: “I am grateful that my hard work and an enthusiasm for music has resulted in this promising achievement. This has further motivated me to continue playing the flute at a high level after leaving St Peter’s. However, this would not have been accomplished without guidance and support from Mrs Blood and accompanying from Mrs Sharpe”.

Mr Paul Miles-Kingston, Director of Music at St Peter’s School, said: “We are delighted to hear of this diploma success for Emily. It is an exceptional achievement for a pupil of her school age.”

Mr Jeremy Walker, Head Master at St Peter’s School said: “Emily has worked hard for over a year in preparation for her LCTL Diploma and this represents an outstanding achievement for someone still at school. We are all very proud of Emily and congratulate her on this exceptional achievement.”

Music is an important part of life at St Peter’s School, and the Music School is one of the largest and most diverse school music departments in the country.
