Speech and Drama
In these classes we teach children from the age of 5yrs on a one to one basis and work through the LAMDA syllabus in Speech, Drama and Acting skills, audition, reading and presenting skills as well as diction and clarity when speaking. The LAMDA syllabus is a professional examining body and pupils can be put forward for LAMDA exams should they wish. In this class, we also work towards local drama festivals and competitions. These exams at certain grades are equivalent to a GCSC pass and also count towards UCAS points for University. These classes are currently on a Saturday afternoon but we can make arrangements to provide these lessons at another suitable time.
LAMDA examinations improve communication skills, improve self-confidence and develop strong social skills.
From the elocution examinations of the past to today’s practical communication and performance assessments, LAMDA’s examinations have provided each and every learner with the skills and the confidence to succeed in life.
LAMDA exams are about achievement – recognising and rewarding the endeavour’s of each individual – but they are also about empowerment. The ultimate aim is to provide all people with the opportunity to develop the life skills they need to be a success: attributes such as self-confidence and the ability to communicate clearly and present ideas.
At the heart of LAMDA examinations is the recognition that these qualifications are for everyone. Across the globe, LAMDA examinations unite learners of all ages, abilities, backgrounds and cultures in enthusiasm for the English language and a desire to develop skills for life.
