Drumbeat School & ASD Service

Drumbeat Key Stage 4 and 6th Form students have made fantastic personal achievements in this year’s qualifications.

Key Stage 4 and 6th Form students at Drumbeat have done particularly well in their exams and qualifications this year. The eagerly awaited results day in the holidays revealed a number of fantastic achievements and a significant increase in the breadth of subjects and number of entries.

Every single Drumbeat student taking qualifications has worked really hard and there have been many journeys of personal development. We are really proud of our students and wish to celebrate their success. Well done everyone.
