PLEASE PLEASE could someone attending the year 7 girls funding audition next Tuesday message me the itinerary for the morning?  I have called the school and left a message and emailed but had no reply and I feel a bit daft calling or writing again. Please it’s for next Tuesday yr 7 girls. I have booked the hotel but I don’t know what time I have to have her there or if she needs to take anything. 
Thanks x

 Hi Flower, my daughter is in the year 7 girls funding audition so I hope this helps.

They need to arrive at 8:45 am on Tuesday. There will be a 90 minute ballet class and they must arrive ready for class. They may also need to attend a 15 minute physio appointment - organised alphabetically and departure times will be set accordingly (so I assume if you're early in the alphabet you pick her up earlier than if your name starts with z!) 

That's virtually all the letter says - results will be 7-10 days after the audition.

Good luck!

Thanks loads. I think that is probably what mine said.  See you there. Best of luck x

Has anyone contacted Tring? Don’t want to inundate them with calls, just wondering whether upper school funding audition on this Friday?

Hi Princess Dreams, 

We were there yesterday for PF funding auditions, I personally would assume that your audition is still going ahead unless you hear otherwise. I guess if the school is open then they will run the auditions?

Good luck 🤞🤞

We were there for Dance MDS today.  Parents weren’t allowed in the building just drop and collect from the door but other than that all as normal.  I guess now it’s making a decision as to whether attending is ‘essential’ travel.

 I asked about when we would hear and the nice - but very unsure - lady helping with reception said that they had more auditions on Friday so it would be a few days after that. She seemed confident that Friday was happening- but then nothing is certain these days .....

Just received email regarding Friday funding audition. On as normal, but no parent access, just drop child off at the door and collect , or attached information if you wanted to send video footage.

We just got our letter, also on the waiting list for MDS. 

Wonder if we can find out how far down the list we are?

Congratulations!  I’ve already emailed to see if they’re able to give an indication; top, middle or bottom 😂  I realise that there will be lots of movement as dancers receive offers from elsewhere but if we’re middle/bottom of the list then I guess we need to move on and decide how best to use the next year.  My husband thinks the reserve list is worse than an outright no.... I’m starting to agree 😕

 

Also do they put everyone on the reserve list?

Morning everyone, well done to all the reserve list places.

Ours came today, reserve list for MDS upper school. 
DD happy, but anxious wait now to see if she gets an award.

Does anyone know of any places becoming available in previous years? Or an approximate amount that are in the same position?

Well done to everyone with positive results so far.
Well our letter came today and we are delighted that my daughter received funding for upper school. A huge relief. Lots more results to arrive yet but it is fantastic to know that she has a place for September.

I think maybe the question is Does anyone know of a final audition candidate who *isn’t * on the reserve list?

Going back a few years now & for year 7 entry (so this may not be current policy) I was told by the then Director of Dance that all at finals who didn’t get offer of funding were on a numbered reserve list for funding & - at that time - it was shared with us in request that we were not particularly high so best advice was to be looking at plans B/C.....

I couldn’t say if you can get that info nowadays...

Remember though that not that many per year group are even invited to finals across each year group so DC’s have already achieved much to be proud of!

Also remember that it is often the same faces at finals for all the MDS lower schools & for the Ballet focussed Upper Schools. And the best of the best may well receive multiple offers of funded places from these schools but will only ever accept a place at ONE of them so that may free up a funded place at one or more school for another candidates on these schools reserve lists....

So well done to those with a yes to funded place & good luck deciding whether to accept it or another  offer....& well done also to those on reserve list & GOOD LUCK! 

I really hope all the offers enable as many DC’s as possible to go to their first choice School....but also remember that another option still may offer exactly the right fit for their immediate future training at this time! 

Good luck with all the decisions & let’s hope that we can all look optimistically to Ballet life getting back to normal as soon as possible for our DC’s xx
