ABRSM Graded Piano Exams and Diplomas

We are delighted to announce that participants on the Junior Academy can take an ABRSM Piano exam or a diploma on the final morning – August 13th.

It will be possible to sit any level of exams from Grade 1 – 8, the ARSM, DipABRSM, LRSM and FRSM (subject to sufficient numbers of entries)

The ABRSM believe in the importance of all-round musicianship and this forms the basis of their exams.


To become an all-round musician students need a range of interlocking skills – in performance, technique, notation, and listening and musical perception – as well as knowledge, understanding and creativity.

Please do follow the links below for information on repertoire and requirements.

There is a box on the application form to select your chosen exam. Application forms will be sent out by the administrator.


The piano summer school is one of the highlights of my year – brought about not only by excellent organisation but by the trust and friendliness you seem to inspire in others. I would like to express my sincere thanks to you both for making it so. I look forward to seeing you next August.
