There is the option for pupils to take graded exams. I teach both Rockschool and Trinity Rock and Pop grades . I am experienced teaching students from grades 1-8 and have a 100% pass rate. Doing grades is a great way to giving students an aim and focus. They are recognized qualifications and for grades 6-8 UCAS points are awarded. The songs from the grades are also widely used for GCSE and A Level Music individual performances.
