LAMDA Examinations

The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts (LAMDA) offers examinations for children of all ages which are recognised academically and professionally worldwide. Children are trained in numerous different aspects of Drama ranging from Shakespeare performance, Contemporary performance, and communication skills such as public speaking. As well as learning performative skills, children will also be trained in analytical and contextual skills when studying texts for performance.

LAMDA qualifications are recognised world wide as one of the oldest and most respected awarding bodies. LAMDA is a recognised awarding body by OfQual as well as qualifications equaling UCAS points, preparing students for university entry. Your child will learn valuable skills which will aid them in performance as well as helping children who are studying Drama at school/college and both non-GCSE and GCSE/A-level.

Students will receive one to one training from your LAMDA teacher (or paired teaching where children are studying duologues). When your LAMDA teacher feels your child is ready they will be entered for examination, which will be assessed by an external examiner.
