Summer remote exam results

Summer remote exam results

We held a 'remote' exam session in June to allow students to progress after a challenging year.

Over the course of 7 days we had around 260 candidates sit exams in ballet, tap and acrobatics. The exams were filmed under exam coditions and submitted to the 3 different exam boards for assessment. This was a great opportunity for the dancers to gain recognition for the effort they had put in by attending lessons during and after the covid lockdowns.

Ballet exam results

Due to the disruption in learning over the year, many of our students were entered for the RAD Class Award which has slightly less pressure than the exam by allowing the class teacher in the room and not using a points system for marking. Well done to our 35 Class Award candidates who all successfully gained their awards from Pre-Prmary to Grade 3 levels. We had another 65 candidates sit a graded ballet exam from Grade 1 to Grade 8 level, and we are delighted to announce that 40% of them gained a Distinction, and 60% gained a Merit! What an amazing feat after only weeks of in-person lessons! We have a special congratulations to the dancers who were awarded over 80%

  • Grade 1: Charlie Fleming 86%
  • Grade 2: Rachel Higgins 82% ; Heidi Russell 87%
  • Grade 4: Jill Russell 90% ; 
  • Grade 6: Anna Bremner 86% ; Ailish Ogilvie  92%
  • Grade 8:  Olivia Hunter  80%

Another 15 candidates sat the challenging Vocational graded exams at Intermediate Fundation and Intermediate level. Overall they gained 11 Merit and 3 Distinctions - excellent results!

  • Intermediate: Anna Bremner  82% ; Ailish Ogilvie 80%
Tap exam results

We only had 3 candidates for tap and they sat their Grade 5 level. All 3 girls gained high Distinctions which was particularly impressive given that the camera had stopped filming and they had to perform half of the exam again... they were completely exhausted by the end! Well done to:

  • April Beattie  93%
  • Hannah Firh  89%
  • Laura Cummings  86%
Acrobatics results

A staggering 98 candidates filmed their acrobatics exam from First Steps to Silver levels. We are thrilled that 95% of the dancers gained a Highly Commended which is the highest band with another 5 gaining Commended which is the second highest band. What a great achievement!
