As The Ballet School follows the Royal Academy’s system of training this involves various (optional) assessment and examination procedures at the end of each academic year. These are designed to provide the children with both a goal and a subsequent sense of achievement. It is important that students are well prepared for these exams and that sufficient time is allowed for them to develop the necessary technical skills and artistic qualities required at any given level.

Each child who is keen to be entered MUST attend 2 classes a week from the beginning of the summer term until the day of their exam. This will enable them to feel confident about their work and therefore be seen at their best.
