Showstopping Results in LAMDA Exams
29 pupils in the Prep School have each scored over 70% in their recent LAMDA exams as well as 15 pupils in the Senior School achieving 100% Distinctions across the board.
Pupils from Form One - Upper Third took a range of examinations from Grade One to Grade Four in Acting and the Speaking of Verse and Prose. Pupils each achieved over 70% in their exams, an outstanding result, with Distinctions and High Merits all round. In the Senior School, pupils across all year groups took examinations in Acting, Musical Theatre and Verse and Prose.
Jeanne Stacey, Teacher of Drama and LAMDA, commented "It is so rewarding to see the pupils growing in their creativity, confidence and communication skills."
Prep School pupils with a passion or interest in the dramatic arts can develop their performance skills by taking LAMDA lessons. Pupils work towards achieving grades and medals in either Performance Examinations in Acting or Communication Examinations in the Speaking of Verse and Prose.
The London Academy of Dramatic Art is one of the UK's oldest and most respected drama schools and awarding bodies. LAMDA exams are about achievement – recognising and rewarding the endeavours of everyone – but they are also about empowerment. The ultimate aim is to provide each individual with the opportunity to develop the life skills they need to be a success including self-confidence and the ability to communicate clearly and present ideas.
The College would like to extend its congratulations to all the pupils for this fantastic achievement.
