Grade Exams

Dear Teachers and Dancers,


We would like to invite you to Grade Exams hosted by The Grace Kennedy School on the 25th April 2020 in Manchester.


New for 2020 we will also be running Grades 11 and 12. A separate application form must be completed for 11 and 12, please email us to request this. CLRG will appoint a SDCRG examiner ensuring there are no conflicts with candidates’ previous examiners hence why these applications need to be submitted earlier.

Closing dates for Entries

Grades 11 & 12 - Friday 31st January

Grades 1-10 – Friday 21st February

As you will be aware since January 2018 it has been a requirement of CLRG that all 12 Grade Examinations must be completed to be eligible to apply for the TCRG Examination. Therefore, we encourage early entry as spaces are limited.

Spaces are allocated on a first come, first served basis on receipt of both the entry form and payment. Please note entries can only be accepted from teachers registered with An Coimisiún le Rincí Gaelacha and we ask for one payment per school.


Dancers are permitted to take up to 3 consecutive Grades at one time and a period of 3 calendar months must have elapsed between exams (i.e. the candidates last exam must have been on or before 25th January 2020)


Our exams this year will again be held at Loreto Preparatory School, Dunham Road, Altrincham, WA14 4QZ. An abundance of free parking is available on site and the venue is easily accessible from the motorways and Manchester Airport. It is also just a short 7-minute walk from the rail/tram station in Altrincham Town Centre. We will have a waiting/warm-up area separate to the exam room and refreshments will also be provided.  


For those travelling from afar there are plenty of hotels in Altrincham including: Best Western Cresta Court, Travelodge Altrincham and Mercure Bowden Hotel.


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.


We look forward to welcoming you in April 2020.


Katie Gibbons (TCRG) & Grace Kennedy (TCRG)
