Trinity Performance Exams 7 - 12 yrs

September 2019 - July 2020

Course | Stage Two


Places for the Autumn course are now off sale. 

Trinity College London is a leading international examinations board. They specialise in communicative and performance skills including music, drama and combined arts. At their heart is a belief that effective communication and performance skills are life enhancing, know no boundaries and should be within reach of us all. They are creative and encourage those wanting to go into the profession have a wide skills set. They offer a wonderfully supportive way to build individuals confidence.

Students will work in small groups with a practitioner for 10 weeks towards an appropriate level performance examination. At the end of the term they will be assessed by friendly examiners who themselves work within the industry and will be given feedback and their grade within a week of the exam date.

Students can usually complete a grade in just one term, however, most students do stay with us for the year and progress through the different examinations and grade. The higher grades carry UCAS points, helping towards university applications in the future.
