We regularly stage a large show at the Manor Pavilion in Sidmouth. ALL pupils, from the under 5's to senior students, take part. It is their chance to experience performing before the public, in a professional theatre, using the most up to date technology in sound and lighting available - the most anticipated event in the school diary!

Every now and then we offer coach trips to see West End and touring shows at a reduced rate, occasionally with our own ex-pupils in the show!

At the end of our Spring term we have open classes for parents to come along and see how their child has progressed. Awards are presented to students for appearance, attitude, improvement and hard work shown in class throughout the year. Also, exam certificates and progress awards are given after demonstration of syllabus and medal tests.

Every other year we enter pupils for exams. This gives them something to work towards, as well as a great sense of achievement when they pass. Of course exams are necessary for those who wish to become teachers. Not all pupils, however, are born dancers, and you can be assured that any pupil not wanting to take exams will not be held back, but will move to the next grade with the rest of their class.
