In Trinity Exam classes, the teacher creates a scheme of work to support thorough preparation towards the criteria requirement for each grade of the Trinity London Exams. In the last eight years we are proud to say we have had great success, having attained 100% distinction and some of the highest grades in Singapore in the Grades 6, 7 & 8

These UK and worldwide recognised exams, adjudicated by visiting Trinity examiners, are not only an excellent focus and goal to work towards, in providing a recognised measure of the effort and work put in, they also prove very useful for the student who wishes to gain an extra arts GCSE or A level equivalent outside of school in Grade 6 & 8 respectively. And importantly all Trinity exams are extremely helpful in contributing towards a students UCAS points when applying for Universities in the UK. For example a Grade 6 distinction can provide 40 points. This can offer a real boost when trying to attain a particular grade required for acceptance on to particular course at university.

So overall these courses help reward and fulfil a student educationally, creatively and artistically all at the same time!
