Examinations

100% pass rate in all dance and drama classes. Examinations are held three times a year. Participation is optional. If parents have not paid for costumes and exam/medal fees the Academy reserves the right to refuse the inclusion of any student participating in the relevant event.

Academy Attendance

Once a student has been accepted into a class their place is secured. It is therefore an expectation that the Academy will require a commitment from the student/parent that regular attendance will be maintained to ensure progression and participation in theatre productions/competitions. Should a student be identified as failing to attend the Academy without a valid reason for more than three weeks then the Academy reserves the right to offer the students place to another student waiting to join the Academy. In return the Academy will actively work with parents in confidence to ensure that the where a valid reason supports the non attendance, appropriate training plans can be agreed to bring the student back to the training level for the stage that they would have been at the point of return.

Academy Dress Code

The Academy encourages a relaxed dress code for most of its classes however there are some which require appropriate attire to reflect the standards required under examination. Upon enquiring/joining the Academy you will be advised of the appropriate dress code for the chosen class. Students will be expected to join their fellow students in the theatre productions each year and this will require additional costumes, however the Academy will try to seek best value and price on behalf of its students/parents.
