After completing the Graded examinations all students move on to study Higher Graded examinations in Ballet and Vocational examinations in Ballet, Tap and Modern Jazz. These higher level qualifications are now found on the National Qualification Framework and provide students with extra UCAS points. For the most up to date information on the amount of points rewarded for each examination please follow the links page to the relevant examination boards website.
Examinations are available in ISTD Modern Jazz and Tap, RAD Ballet Vocational and Higher Grades.
Currently we offer Vocational level IDTA Ballet, Tap, Modern and Theatre Craft on a private lesson basis.
Students at this level are also invited to train to become assistant teachers and are often seen in lessons assisting senior members of staff. They provide great role models to the Lower School.
