Im currently at a RAD trained school but I want to move schools thats ISTD trained, is there much of a difference will I struggle with it alot and have to go back a few grades?

Any help appreciated

Probably not; you'll find some different nomenclature, and a few differing ways of doing some steps, but whether you do ISTD Imperial syllabus or ISTD Cecchetti, the change won't be very jarring.

No, it shouldn't be too much of a shock. Things may have different names, and there will be some different ways of doing steps, as in a pas de basque glissé, where there will either be fewer or more coupés than you're used to in RAD, but no great horrors.
