External examinations are held when the individual pupil is ready, these are the Royal Academy of Dance Grades 1 to 8.

Vocational exams are taken in various centres round the UK but we usually arrange for our students to travel to the Royal Academy headquarters in London.

We also teach to the Imperial Society Syllabus and the Scottish Dance Branch.
