At WDA we enter students for RAD ballet exams and ISTD modern and Tap exams throughout the academic year.  Pupils may be entered for examinations when they are considered to have achieved the required standard.  All pupils attempting examinations must be prepared to attend additional coaching sessions. 

Pupils will only be entered for exams at the teachers discretion. 

Pupils may opt out of taking examinations.  If a pupil does not take an examination, their progression to the next grade will be determined by the teacher based on their strength, technical ability and understanding of the work covered in their current grade.

 All Exams are now recognised on the QCF framework and Major examinations have UCAS points attached to them. For more information please follow the links below.
