Two talented 16-year-old musicians have won places at a top music school.

Isabelle Ashton, from Silverstone, and Michaias Berlouis, from Brackley, have both just finished their GCSEs.

As children, both attended Wayneflete Infants School and Brackley Junior School.

Then Isabelle, who studies flute and piano, went on to Sponne School in Towcester.

Michaias, who will study trombone, piano and euphonium, went to Northampton School for Boys.

The excited youngsters will now attend sixth form at the prestigious Chetham’s School of Music, in Manchester.
