ISTD and LAMDA Exams in Chorleywood and Gerrards Cross
If you would like your child to gain a dance or drama certification, either as motivation to measure their progress, or as means to enter higher education, we provide opportunities for them to do so at several levels starting at approximately 5 years old. The exam day is a special occasion when highly qualified and professional examiners visit the school. It's thoroughly enjoyed by all the candidates and they are well-prepared for these exams, with plenty of notice provided.
