What is LAMDA? 

The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) is one of the oldest drama schools in the United Kingdom. Founded in 1861, it quickly established itself as a centre of excellence in performance training. LAMDA has provided theatre and the world of film and television with generation upon generation of first-class actors and expertly-trained stage managers across the world. It is also one of only three drama schools in the Conservatoire of Dance and Drama (CDD).

The Benefits of LAMDA Examinations

LAMDA examinations are designed to equip learners, whatever their age or aspirations, with a range of skills that will serve them throughout life. LAMDA’s overall mission is to improve standards in communication and spoken English by fostering an appreciation of literature, poetry and drama and supporting individual development.

The Communication Examinations help students develop an appreciation of literature, the skills required to organise arguments and ideas into structured speeches, confidence in speaking both in conversation and to a group, presentation skills, a clear and focused speaking voice and positive body language.

The Performance Examinations help students develop creativity, vocal confidence and physical presence, empathy and an understanding of the impact of language.

In addition, by developing an understanding of good teamwork and empathy, students are equipped with the skills and confidence to integrate with children from other countries and cultures.

Preparation for an Examination can unlock the imagination and creative-thinking, develop communication skills, refine technical skills and artistry, promote team-working.
