The London College of Music has praised the Derry based McGinley School of Music for its recent exam results.

Many students from the school achieved outstanding results in their recent singing, piano and drama exams.

Not only did all the students at the school obtain the top level but 12 children achieved the ultimate result - 100 per cent.

“It was a pleasure to examine such well prepared children, the teaching is world class and the results are a testimony to the hard work of both the children and the teachers at the school,” said London College of Music Chief Examiner, Philip Aldred.

If that wasn’t enough to impress then one of the school’s students, Sally Mae Comey, became the first student in the UK to gain 100 per cent in two exams.

The Head Examiner of the London College of Music, who examined Sally, praised her thorough preparation and talent.

Director of the McGinley School of Music and London College of Music Examiner, Ray McGinley described the children’s success as unprecedented and as something that should be celebrated locally.

“I can’t stress enough how unprecedented this is. I have been an examiner for quite a while now and I only gave 100 per cent once so for our school to get results like this is just amazing.

“I am so proud of the children, their parents and their teachers. I am over the moon with the talent in our little city and when you get such nice comments from the London College of Music it makes it all worthwhile.”
