WHAT IS LAMDA?
LAMDA is a Speech and Communications Board overseen by OFQUAL that offers exams resulting in qualifications in both Speech and Drama that are recognised around the world.
WHAT CAN MY CHILD DO?
The choices seem endless where LAMDA exams are involved. Students can try their hand at Public Speaking, Mime, Acting, Verse and Prose, Musical Theatre, Reading for Performance and many more communications based exams.
HOW DO LESSONS WORK?
Students will work with their LAMDA teacher towards an exam subject of their choice. Lessons are available as solo, duo and group sessions. The duration of lessons are 30 minutes long for solo and duo sessions and one hour for group theatre. 8 lessons will be taught per term (3 terms) within an academic year and a ‘showcase’ of each term’s work will take place after each term to perform in front of an invited audience.
HOW MANY EXAMS CAN MY CHILD AIM TO TAKE A YEAR?
Each student is different with different needs and aspirations and that means a creating an individual programme for each child. On average, a candidate will look to take up to two exams a year (usually within two different subjects).
WHEN AND WHERE ARE EXAMS HELD?
Exams may be held locally and should take place during school time. However this is subject to LAMDA’S examiner availability and the school meeting the total number of fees that LAMDA requires for a private centre. Alternative exam dates can usually be made at other centres in Oxted, Kent and London locations.
