At the South Sutton Ballet School we pride ourselves on making sure your child will progress to the best of their ability in the Royal Academy of Dance syllabus. You will be informed in writing when we feel your child is ready to participate in a ballet exam, usually every four terms. In order to participate in the exam, your child will need to attend extra exam classes in the term of the exam. The examination criteria focuses on technique, musicality and performance and marks will be awarded for each of these criteria. Possible outcomes are:
100%-75% – Distinction
74%-55% – Merit
54%-40% – Pass
39%-0% – Standard not attained
All examination fees are made payable in advance and are non-refundable in all cases unless you have a signed doctor’s note, in which case the RAD will refund 50% of the examination fee.
