External instrumental and vocal examinations

We offer external ABRSM instrumental and vocal examination sessions in May/June of each year at St Helens Town Hall. These are a great way of celebrating your achievements thus far, as a motivational tool and as a means to support musical study in school as part of GCSE, BTEC or A-Level courses.

Examinations usually take place on a weekend in May or June. Students can book their examination through the service where they can also arrange to be accompanied by one of the service's keyboard tutors, should they require one. Examinations at other times of the year would need to be booked privately for other regional centres in Liverpool, Warrington or Wigan.

Students will need to purchase music and pay for the examination itself (and an accompanist). Your child's instrumental teacher will provide you with you with an application form, which will include the most up-to-date costs and submission dates associated with these examinations.
