LAMDA SPRING EXAMINATIONS

Talented speech and drama pupils received outstanding results in their recent LAMDA (The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts) examinations. The pupils, ranging from age 6 to 18 years demonstrated their skills in acting, verse and prose speaking and reading for performance awarding them certificates from the prestigious London Academy examination board.

Many pupils gained high distinctions in varying grades with marks in excess of 90% with one exceptional 100% award. Abi, who is delighted with her second year of excellent results said:

“It is a reflection of the growing confidence of the pupils. It is rewarding to see them develop and increase their knowledge in the subjects they are studying. Whether or not they go on to have a career in the arts, they have much to gain by studying literature, reciting from memory and having fun along the way, they are learning valuable communication skills."
