A DANCING school has maintained a 100 per cent pass rate for a third year.

Forty-one pupils from five-13, from Buntingford Ballet School took classical ballet exams recognised by the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing - and all passed with either a merit or a distinction.

It was a fine way to mark the school's 300th exam.

School principal Philippa McMeechan said: "It's a fantastic achievement which exceeded our expectations."

Philippa said: "They were really excited and pleased they had all passed, but they deserved it, because they worked very hard.
