Well I'm in total shock today. My dd auditioned just under two weeks ago for the 1st form dance course (plus theatre arts course). She loved the audition but listened to speech at the start about looking for long and lean (she's tiny) and said well not me they're looking for. Postman been today and she's been invited to funding audition.

Congratulations to your DD, Sarah2203! She may be tiny but probably has the long and lean look anyway ;) - it seems to be proportions rather than height that's often looked for.

Dd has received an offer of a day place, invitation to scholarship audition and waiting list for boarding for tring sixth form. We know of others with similar offers. Obviously circumstances for funding are different this year with no Dadas available. I wondered if anyone knows of anyone with an offer of a boarding place for sixth form with scholarship audition ? Also any information about home stays ( costings, availability) would be welcome as we live too far from the school for a day place to be an option. Many thanks in advance x

My DD has been offered a day place.  We were told that this was down to the fact that they have to wait until they know what the current 6th formers are planning to do.  There is actually a lot of movement as some decide that they prefer a different emphasis and so move schools.  My older DD is staying at Tring for 3rd year but has to live out so will effectively free up a boarding space.  Would be nice if my other DD could simply slot into this bed but I am sure it doesn't work like that.

 

I would love to know how many scholarships they have to give out just to give DD an idea of odds of her getting one.

I think you are right. Also do they go out by post or email?

Thanks Loulabelle. The stress of waiting is compounded by the fact that our wireless router keeps dropping out. So very glad it will be snailmail.

Day place and funding audition offer for dd too. She was Tuesday audition, so looks as though results are coming out day by day.

Book it quickly Karen, it will fill up fast and the price is quite good at the moment.

Thank you Loulabelle for prompting me - all booked.

Well done to those with yes letters and good luck for finals!

Sorry about the no for your dd mnemo and good luck for Rambert and any further auditions.  Please don't despair as I do think that the schools are all different and seem to like different qualities.  My dd has had mixed results so far including a final, firm offer and a no. 

We have not yet heard from Tring dreamy11.

Oh bless you - it is so hard being a dance parent at audition time. It reminds me how pleased I am to be in a year off......

Anyone know how many they call back for finals? There seem to be a lot getting finals... trying to figure out if they'll all be in one class or split over several!

I can't remember exactly how many got finals two years ago, but looked like more then 6 girls for year 7. More like 12? Around 5-6 were asked to stay for physio assessment after finals.

 

Edited to add that maybe some of the girls were trying for Year 8 or 9 but I remember another group of slightly older girls starting their final auditions soon after my DD so I guess first group was just Year 7.
