A HIGH-FLYING horn player showed off her musical prowess to gain a Diploma from the London College of Music.

Eleanor Mole, 18, a sixth form student at Wisbech Grammar School, gained a score of 92 out of 100, well above the pass mark of 75, that was needed to gain the DipLCM (Diploma from the London College of Music).

She said: “I am really pleased that all my hard work in preparation for my Diploma has paid off. I would really like to thank Mr Steward for teaching me.”

Gabriel Fitzsimmons, director of music at the school, said: “I am delighted with Eleanor’s success.

“It is a display of excellent diligence, dedication and commendable musicianship by both Eleanor and her tutor.”
