Make the Grade!

We work towards ISTD Dance examinations in all our ballet, modern and tap classes.

A qualified ISTD examiner visits the school twice a year, as and when the students are ready. These exams are by no means compulsory but give you a great indication of how your child is progressing, and they get a lovely certificate to prove it! When they reach the higher grades these exams also count towards UCAS points.
