Examinations

A deposit the term before the exam session is to be paid and is non refundable if you then decide not to allow your child to take the exam. This will help to cover charges made to the school by the ISTD for cancellation fees. Otherwise, it will be used as part payment towards the child’s exam fees.

Relevant examination fees are invoiced separately, and must be settled before the deadline date given. Extra coaching classes for examinations are compulsory, usually for five or six weeks before the exam day. You are requested to be flexible at coaching times, as these classes are not taken on your child’s usual dancing day.

Collection
