We are very pleased to tell you about some exciting improvements that we’re making to our Drama exams later this year.

From September 2023 – updated specifications for Trinity’s face-to-face and digital Drama grades and diplomas

The syllabus specifications for our grades and diplomas have been improved and updated for the following subjects and are now available to download on our website:

·       Acting

·       Musical Theatre

·       Performance Arts

·       Speech and Drama

·       ATCL Performing and Communication Skills


Updates to Trinity Drama qualifications – new for 2023trinitycollege.com

Having listened to feedback from our customers, we are streamlining the experience for teachers and candidates. The requirements for face-to-face and digital exams have been combined into a single reference document for each subject, and we have redesigned the Key Skills tasks.

The new syllabus specifications are now available to download and can be used for exams from September 2023. From that time onwards the 2020 face-to-face and digital grade and diploma specifications will no longer be valid, and all teachers and candidates must use the updated syllabus specifications in exams.

Performance Certificates

In addition, Performances Certificates in all subjects are being withdrawn and all assessments of Performance Certificates should be completed by 31 December 2023. To make an enquiry about the withdrawal of these exams please contact drama@trinitycollege.com.
