London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art
LAMDA is now the largest Examination board of Speech and Drama examinations and not only has it gained a reputation of excellence as a Drama School and leader in examinations in the UK, the Academy is renowned throughout Europe, Middle East, Far East, Africa and the United States. LAMDA offers performance based examinations, carefully refined and developed over many years by experts in education, acting and communication.
Why take LAMDA?
Students who enjoy acting, poetry and prose and want to develop their performance technique can follow the LAMDA syllabus. They can work individually, in pairs and in small groups to improve their skills in voice, diction, movement and mime.
Lessons are designed to help students gain confidence by engaging imaginatively with text to communicate thoughts, emotion, style and form, with clarity, in recital performances and public speaking. Versatility in acting is encouraged through improvisation and rehearsal of a variety of scenes from classical and contemporary plays; they explore methods of creating believable characterisations and situations and further their understanding of performance process and presentation techniques. All of the techniques learnt and developed in LAMDA lessons help the young people and adults in their presentation skills throughout their school career, University experience and future work life.

Those awarded Bronze (equivalent of GCSE), Silver (equivalent of AS level) and Gold (equivalent of A level) Medals and diplomas win valuable UCAS points which they can put towards their total achievement at A level and in their personal statements when applying for University places.
