Congratulations to all our pupils who passed their London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts (LAMDA) examinations. All 11 of our pupils were successful in their examinations which involved speaking verse and prose, speaking in public and acting.

Some of our pupils took their first exams while others have been progressing through Grades 4 and 5. A special mention goes to Lucia Lee who achieved a merit at Grade 5 and is now working towards Grade 6 – the first grade to contribute to UCAS points for University entry.

Alex Dawson, Director at drama support service TARGET, who coordinated the exams, said: “LAMDA is hugely important as a medium for self-expression in a safe and supportive environment. Drama teaches vital and transferrable life skills, including confidence, self-esteem and presentation skills. Success in LAMDA exams fosters a sense of achievement and has a positive impact on other aspects of a student’s schooling. I am very proud of our students and of the hard work they put in to achieve such good results.”
