PUPILS at Prebendal School were jumping for joy last week when they celebrated gaining scholarships for the next step in their school lives.

Year 8 pupils set a record in Prebendal’s long and distinguished history, with 78 per cent of them gaining scholarships to their public schools.

They were awarded not only for academic excellence but also for music, art and all-round ability.

Headteacher Tim Cannell said: “This is an incredible record and it is a testament to their hard work over many years and, of course, to the school staff who teach them.

“I am delighted for them all and congratulate them on their success.”
