Students get the opportunity to take exams with the RAD & ISTD when deemed ready by their teacher. Exams are conducted by external examiners on various dates throughout the academic year. It is not compulsory to take exams, but if a student shows good ability, it is encouraged as it provides a focus and gives a sense of achievement. Students hoping to progress into further education in the performing arts benefit from internationally recognised qualifications. Senior levels also provide UCAS points for university applications.


Within this academic year students have taken a total of 111 exams in classical ballet, modern theatre, tap dance and acrobatic arts. 

All achieving a 100% pass rate and some students awarded over 90% in some exams. Huge congratulations to everyone that has taken exams this year and we look forward to running further successful exams in the future.
