A PEEBLES dance school is celebrating after achieving its best-ever exam results. Pupils at the Fiona Henderson School of Dance received their marks just before Christmas. And there was a 100 per cent pass rate.

School principal Fiona Henderson said: “All the teachers are delighted and so proud of all our pupils – it was a huge effort with over 185 examinations taking place on the day itself. I am particularly pleased with the quality of the results. Our pupils achieved outstanding results, with over 92 per cent of them achieving the top or second top grade possible which is really fantastic, and they should all be very proud of themselves.”

The school was also once again given a 100 per cent rating by the examiners – who assessed the facilities and organisation.

The Fiona Henderson School of Dance will be holding an open day at its studios in Old Halyrude School, Old Church Road, Peebles on Sunday, January 6, from 2-4pm where the public can come along and find out about classes for all ages.
