We are pleased to offer to our students the opportunity to take the graded examinations of New Era Academy. These exams are accredited and the Level 3 exams (Grades 6,7,8) carry UCAS points. The School had the first adults to take these exams in Oct 2017 and each passed their Grade 8. We will be hosting New Era Academy examinations throughout the year.

Victoria College Examinations

We are pleased to announce our 're-connection' with Victoria College exams. Some 10 years ago these exams were part of the examination portfolio of the School. Many of our students took the vcm medal exams and higher diplomas. The recession meant that the number of exams offered to students was reduced and for a number of years the School offered only LAMDA exams to students. We are pleased to write that vcm exams are now available once again. A growing number of our students have recently gained the Victoria College Junior Bronze Medal and some of the older candidates have been awarded the Associate Diploma in Presentation and Interview Skills. We are pleased to be promoting vcm speech exams once again.

Well Done!
