Personally, I felt it was highly inappropriate to single out an individual pupil in this way and highly irrelevant too!

We can’t unless the parents or child personally lets you know.

I’m new to the forum with a daughter off to vocational school in September , obviously reading the statistics on here is alarming and a bit depressing if I’m honest . Is there anyone on here that could share some happy/ successful stories of their children’s time at vocational school and beyond ?

Mart, our Forum rules are clear and all members agree to these rules upon joining the Forum.  As well as a specific section about Discussing Schools, the Acceptable Use Policy also has this paragraph under “Privacy”:

 

No member should give details of another member’s children such as their name or their dance school, unless the parent has already done so publicly here – this applies particularly in the Doing Dance forum.”

 

I hope that clarifies things.  

 

Many thanks,

 

Anna C on behalf of Balletcoforum Moderators

Please don’t be despondent.

One of my pupils has recently graduated and has gained a job in a reputable company in the U.K. .

 

She began at my own school , then Hammond , then another vocational school for post 16 .

 

My DS went to Tring in year 9 and graduated in 2017 .

He gained a job in a lovely classical company abroad and is extremely happy .

He had an amazing time at Tring - gained 8 GCSE , 2 A levels .

He also made lifelong friends , particularly one , who still comes on holiday with us .

His time there included 3 trips to Sweden , a fully funded Summer school in Hong Kong for 3 weeks and much more .

 

These are just a couple of the many many success stories out there .

Of course there will be a few who don’t make the grade , or have a change of heart , but equally those who go on to happy and fulfilled careers in the industry .

My DS has a friend who gave up dancing aged 18 after being 

at vocational school since 11 .

He says that he doesn’t regret a single minute .

 

Good luck on your journey into vocational world , I am sure exciting times lie ahead .

Thank you , wonderful to hear this . I’ve gone through so many emotion in the last week . From happiness to sheer panic . I’m trying to approach it realistically and hope that it’s the right decision. Sounds like your son had a wonderful time regardless of the outcome. Hope to hear some more happy stories .... pours wine 🍷
