Grades & Exams

These are of course an important part of any child's musical development, but are not a necessity with learning, and not all pupils embark on grades. Grades do however help to create clear learning aims and objectives, they provide valuable skills in preparing for an assessment, and they help develop the pupil into a much more rounded musician as they focus on many different elements of music, not just playing tunes!

Teachers will assess if and when pupils are ready for exams, and parents are notified. Grades and exams take place towards the end of each academic term, and the majority of exams do take place in Peterborough. There is a cost for taking grades, and these are not included in any lesson fees.

Exam boards used are:-

ABRSM (Associated Board)

Trinity Guildhall

Rock School
