Exams at our Academy

At Fixation Academy of Performing Arts we offer our students the opportunity to further their learning and take exams to gain qualifications in performing.  We offer a wide range of exams, and whether you are going solo or wanting to take your exams with friends, just getting started, or are ready to build on your skills, we have something that will fit you perfectly. 

We are currently offering exams in Ballet and Theatre performance accredited by established exam boards LAMDA and RAD (Royal Academy of Dance).

Our dedicated classes follow the syllabus provided by each of these exam boards and prepare students towards a successful exam day.

Our LAMDA and RAD teachers focus on developing students’ skills in:

  • Confidence
  • Technique & Understanding
  • Communication
  • Expression
  • Performance

We recommend our exams to any students who see themselves having a career in performing and/or would like to further their technique, knowledge and understanding of theatre & performance. Exams also offer the benefit of earning students UCAS points and are the best way to take your performance passion to the next level.
