A special mention must go to Graham Tobin who after impressing Sensi Harford was DOUBLE graded.
Well done Graham!


At every grading we award a shield for the 'Most Outstanding Student'.  This prestigious award is kept for 3 months until the next grading and the winner has their name engraved on the shield as a lasting record of their achievement.

On this occasion the shield was awarded to Georgie Ryatt.
