Exams

Children taking classes in Ballet, Modern, Tap, Disco and Acro at the school are able to take exams in these subjects. The exams are entirely optional and children who do not wish to take their exams may still move up into the next grade with their friends. There is a fee for the exams which covers the exam fee set by the ISTD, RAD and Acrobatic Arts, the room hire and other exam day purchases. Exams will normally take place on a Sunday, although there are instances, especially with ballet, that they will take place on a school day. Schools are very accomodating and allow children to take the morning or afternoon off for their exams, as they are able to claim points towards their Achievement and Attainment Tables.
