Graded Classes


Graded exams provide a series of qualifications that offer a progressive learning structure for developing performers. They form a set of motivational milestones from beginner level to a standard of proficiency and artistry appropriate for entry to Higher Education ā€” either colleges specialising in the performing arts or the university and conservatoire sector.

Working through the grades represents a typical route for those wishing to become performing artists, as they are an authoritative source of internationally understood benchmarks.

There are 6 Disco Grades with the ISTD, with examinations being recognised by UCAS. Each year if ready the student will take an assessment by an external ISTD examiner.

Preparation for graded exams develops high standards of performance, perception, creativity, knowledge and understanding. Additionally, the grades provide a scheme of clear incremental standards by which candidates, teachers, parents/carers and employers may measure progress in acquiring genuine command of the skills required in each discipline, whether for educational, vocational or social purposes.
