Students are given the opportunity to take Examinations and Medal tests in Ballet, Tap, Modern, National, Jazz, Musical Theatre & Drama. Examination costs are established by the examination body and must be paid 8 weeks before the examination or the student will be withdrawn from the examination.
Pupils wishing to take examinations are required to have 100% attendance. Students will be asked and encouraged to attend additional classes towards their exam. If they are already timetabled classes then these will be free of charge, however if extra classes are required outside of the timetable these will be separately charged.
Pupils wishing to take Grade 2 and above in Modern are advised to attend a Limbering class.
Pupils wishing to take Grade 2 and above in Ballet are advised to attend two Ballet classes a week.
Pupils wishing to take Grade 6 and above in Ballet must attend a weekly Pointe work class.
Private lessons are available (where there is space on the timetable) for any pupil requiring extra help for examinations at an additional cost; please speak to the class teacher to arrange a suitable time.
