  1. I echo your thoughts whiteduvet. In his address to parents at today’s open day , the Tring principal spoke about the diverse successes of the graduates - mentioning in particular those who had changed path to study medicine , for example . All equally celebrated.

  4. Mrs Hoole , house parent at Tring is amazing . Looked after my DS so well . House parents at his previous school were not as nurturing . Everyone’s experiences are different of course .

  7. Before I launch into details - may I check with the moderators that I can advertise these ?
  8. If it’s any help my DS started off doing 3 A levels at Tring . He dropped back to 2 - Maths and Physics , which he gained good grades for . He secured a contract in a ballet company . He wasn’t the only one . So this is acheivable. I think 3 would have been a bit much for him . Tring have a very good choice of A levels and wonderful classical training.

  14. Guessing this isn’t the ideal place to ask , but well established school in West Yorkshire requires a jazz teacher from September 2021 . Any recommendations gratefully received . Thank you

  16. I would echo Valentina’s comments .
  17. I wonder if anyone has received a refund from British Ballet Grand Prix ?
  18. I think I’m repeating myself but my DS graduated from Tring ( he had been there since year 9 ) straight into a guest contract , which became permanent after 3 months . The company is a classical company in Europe . I am certain that the excellent contemporary training at Tring played a huge part in his gaining a place . 2 of his fellow Tring friends were also given places in the same company , although one has since left . They were also gifted at contemporary as well as classical . One of the directors of dance at Tring has very good contacts , as well as being a superb teacher . A wide selection of A levels is available , my DS gained Maths and Physics . A friend of his gained excellent A level results and went on to study medicine . I am more than happy for anyone to pm me for information. I have a former student ( girl ) who recently graduated , and another in year 8.
  19. Tyrone Singleton returned to Tring to adjudicate their famous ‘ cups ‘ competition , four years ago . He was encouraging and supportive to the students at the school where he trained .
  20. There are a fair few who move to RBS from Tring . At least there were when my DS was there . He graduated 4 years ago and is now in a company . He speaks very highly of the classical training at Tring . I am more than happy to share our experiences if anyone wishes to pm me . Tring do very well in competitions too. Cecchetti, for example . Not all the top schools enter for these. They certainly come out as very versatile dancers . My pupil who graduated from Tring last year, was a finalist for BBC young dancer (classical section ) but she is just as proficient in contemporary, jazz and commercial .
  21. Happy for you to pm me about Tring . My DS graduated from there 4 years ago . I have only good things to say .
  22. Happy to talk about Tring if you want to pm me . My DS graduated 4 years ago .
