As part of The Amy Hackett School of Dance children can take part in a variety of exams and assessments which aim to motivate and reward students of all ages and abilities. 

The Ballet exams and assessments are affiliated with the Royal Academy of Dance's (RAD) examination body.

We are soon also hoping to offer Tap and Modern exams and assessments. These  are affiliated with The International Society of Teachers of Dance (ISTD) examination body.

The Examinations assessments and are not compulsory - children who do not wish to take part will not be side-lined in any way, (they will continue working in class as normal, and will move up with their peers after the exams). The aim of Examinations and assessments is to motivate and reward students of all ages and abilities. The focus is on creativity and musicality, with a graded system providing opportunities to progress and achieve. All candidates who successfully pass an Examination or assessment receive a certificate of achievement and a breakdown of their result as well as a medal.
