  1. RBS Junior Associates 2017

    Thinking of everybody during the torturous wait. I hope the children who received no's are ok and the yes's congratulations. We received a yes at about 10.30 in the morning 2 years ago so I think you can expect the results at anytime.
  2. Living at The Hammond

    Army dancer my niece will be starting y7 in September too. Lucky kids!!!
  3. Tring CBA cancelled today (7th May)

    I didn't think CBA was on today, so thankfully we didn't go. DS wasn't booked in for boys day for the first time in 3 years so gave us a day off I have never been able to access this forum on the school wifi. I think it is so the students don't go on it.
  4. Tring auditions for 2017 entry

    The majority of the deposit at Tring is refundable as £2000 of the deposit is fees. £1000 for first term and £1000 refunded when you leave. Therefore if you don't take up the place you only lose the £250 deposit as obviously you won't use the £1000 first terms fees. Hope that makes sense.

    Good luck Harwel. Hard when a second child wants to go, added stress!! Xx
  6. Kickstart (Tring programme for boys)

    It's first come first served. Plenty of places as they have 3 or 4 groups.
  7. Kickstart (Tring programme for boys)

    Hi My DS has done kickstart for the last 2 years. It's well worth the drive, we have a long trip too. He loves the classes and I feel they are very good value for money and a great benefit to him as he gets to experience a range of genres. He has also made some good friends. I'm sure information will be up quite soon for next years classes.
  8. Opes - first week?

    Yes my DS is and DD is too if she isn't away that week. DS is 9 and DD will have just turned 12 the week before.
  9. Vocational schools and socks/tights

    Tring first form (yr7) wear socks for the whole year and that includes pointe work. Second form is tights.
  10. Tring post from 2012 - viewpoints now appreciated

    Ballet queen my DD is on the dance course in yr7 and is loving it. I'll really pleased with her training and her whole school journey so far. If you have any specific questions please message me.
  11. Malvern Ballet Seminars Easter Course

    DS is loving it! I think it is putting it mildly to say he is being challenged!!! Bless his, but he is loving every minute. Can't wait to watch tomorrow.
  12. Easter dance courses

    DS is going to MBS too. I'm looking forward to watching!
  13. 2016 Auditions for Junior Associates

    My son is a JA and at his centre his teacher actively encourages his other interest of Musical Theatre. He was called back for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and missed a couple of classes last term and missed another one this one due to another show. She is completely supportive and says that those experiences are wonderful for him. I watched his class last term at parents watching and it was one of the best classes I have ever seen. He absolutely loves it. We were at a dance school that did not permit any students to attend associate schemes. It was crazy so my children left! Good luck to everybody auditioning this year and extra luck to Balletmummy28 on the school front! It's a very stressful time!! X
  14. Lower School Auditions 2016

    Have heard there are only 5 MDS available at Tring this year.
  15. Tring Park Preps

    Hi. I have never had a child in Prep at Tring but I am confident that it is extremely rare for a child not to be able to continue into main school. The only issue sometimes is that they may not be able to go on the course they would really like. The other problem may be if you need funding to stay and move into main school. It is an amazing school and any child that goes is very lucky.
