Examinations

The examination boards are the Royal Academy of Dancing for Classical Ballet, The Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing for Modern and Tap and London College of Music for Acting. All children attending the school will be encouraged to enter examinations to achieve formal qualification and will be able to do so from the age of five. As a school we do not enter for ‘Class Awards’ or ‘standards’ as these exams are not accredited on the qualifications and credit framework (QCF) (excluding Pre-Primary). Grades start from pre-primary through to RAD and ISTD Major examinations. Graded and Vocational Graded Examinations in Dance/Acting at QCF Level 3 are allocated points on the UCAS Tariff. This means that candidates who have achieved a pass or higher in Grades 6, 7, 8, Intermediate and Advanced Foundation, can use their exam result towards their points tariff when applying to university or higher education in the UK.
