Trinity College performing arts exams

Each year in term 3 we take part in the Trinity Performance Arts Group Examinations.In past years the morning and afternoon classes have taken part in these- achieving great results and having a ton of fun!

Trinity College London (TCL) is an Internationally recognised and accredited examination board- the visiting examiners visit our home in Lyall Bay on a Saturday afternoon during term time.

Registration is optional, although we love to see all students participate in this worthwhile event.

For the exam children present a short performance to the visiting examiner and are assessed as a group. An exam report and certificate will be issued to each child enrolled.

Entry in the exams is optional and fees are an extra cost:

Morning class- Young Performers Certificate – $35 per entry
Afternoon class- Performance Arts Group exams: Grades 2-4– $45 per entry

Standout Performances

Performances for family & friends are held in the hall towards the end of each term during class time. The emphasis is always on fun and participation – a great way to build confidence in a relaxed environment with a supportive, enthusiastic audience!


Classes are held at: St Judes Hall, 68 Freyberg St, Lyall Bay, Wellington
