Pupils Celebrate LAMDA Success
After-school Drama classes help pupils develop their skills in acting, devising, and speaking verse and prose.
Senior School pupils are celebrating a year of dramatic success, having achieved excellent results in their London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts (LAMDA) examinations.
Out of the 33 pupils who took the acting exams in the academic year 2018-19, 22 Distinctions were gained, 9 Merits and 2 Passes. LAMDA classes, which are part of our extra-curricular programme, take place after school on a Monday evening. They are taught by external Drama teachers, who offer pupils the opportunity to develop their skills in 'Acting', 'Devising', and 'Speaking Verse and Prose'. Pupils can work individually or in a group, developing their pieces before taking an exam in Cambridge.
Course tutor Ms Beau Roberts said: “LAMDA classes and exams challenge talented actors and encourage less confident performers, unlocking the imagination and creative-thinking. Students develop communication skills, refine their performance skills, and build self-esteem whilst gaining a nationally recognised qualification.”
