The assessments will take place between  12th October to 5th November inclusive.  The Royal Academy of Dance will advise us of our specific dates late September early October.

Whilst it is not compulsory we would highly recommend that the students participate in an assessment as it gives them:

  • goals to work towards,
  • the experience of presenting their work to a third party, and
  • the chance to have their skills formally recognised.

Two different types of RAD assessment is offered, as follows:

  • The Class Award is led by the teacher and assessed by the examiner. This assessment gives a broad indication of the student’s standard.  Students receive an assessment report.
  • The Exam is led and assessed by the examiner, the teacher is not present. Students receive a detailed assessment report with marks out of 100 and a grade.

Grade Students receive a medal and certificate for both types of assessment as long as they attain the required standard. Vocational Students received a certificate.

All students entering a Class Award or Exam must attend all syllabus classes during the term and grade 1 students should attend 2 syllabus classes per week in term 3.

During the second week of the  October school holidays (5th October to 10th October) we run Assessment week which is compulsory for students entered for either the class award or exam regardless of level unless previously arranged with the Academy  This week will consist of five daily classes over the week apart from PPiD and PiD which will only be required to attend 3 daily lessons.
