Examinations

We are proud to be an Approved Dance Centre (ADC) accredited by the world’s leading examination board, the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD).

Examinations & Accreditation

We are able to offer all graded and vocational level examinations with the following examination boards:

  • Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD)
  • International Dance Teachers Association (IDTA)
  • London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) – (Acting, Devising Drama, Mime, Musical Theatre, Speaking Verse and Prose, Reading for Performance, Spoken English and Speaking in Public)
  • Royal Academy of Dance (RAD)
  • Trinity Guildhall

Although optional, examinations are designed to equip pupils, whatever their age and aspirations, with a range of skills, including technique, confidence and performance that will serve them throughout life. Pupils are entered for examinations from 5 years of age to professional level.

Examinations give a real sense of achievement and, upon success, pupils are rewarded with a report, certificate and medal which all adds to the sense of achievement. Pupils are entered for examinations when they are ready, and this is usually after 12-18 months of study.

During the academic school term, if your child has an ISTD or RAD dance examination scheduled to take place during the week, please click on the appropriate Authorised Absence Letter to present to your child’s Head of School.
