Congratulations to our LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts) students who have received their certificates from last year’s examinations.
Once again, our Junior School pupils cleared 100% Distinctions in their LAMDA certificates. This is the sixth year in a row the Junior School has achieved such an incredible feat. (There were no LAMDA examinations in 2020 due to the pandemic.)
Drama and LAMDA teacher, Mrs Buckley, said, “These fantastic results are a testament to the girls’ hard work, determination and dedication despite last year being so disrupted. I’m so proud of their creativity and positive energy, we have a lot of fun in our lessons too! I think the examiner recognised that the girls are extraordinary performers!”
Ms Capper, Head of the Junior School, paid tribute to the girls efforts, saying, “I am incredibly proud of the girls’ achievement in their LAMDA exams. The girls love their group LAMDA lessons. With excellent guidance and structured teaching, they are given the opportunity to be creative, have fun and develop high level performance skills. In the Junior School the girls work collaboratively and perform together. As part of this journey, they support, motivate, and inspire each other and this week they have celebrated together! I pass on my congratulation to them all.”
Senior School girls also achieved a majority of Distinctions and Merits in their LAMDA results, in monologue and duologue acting, group acting, reading and public speaking across Gold, Silver and Bronze, Grade 4 and Grade 5 certificates. Receiving such excellent results is a wonderful start to the Autumn term.
“It was a big relief to get our LAMDA results back. It’s such a long time since we had our exam. We did our performance during lockdown, which made it a really difficult thing to do, but we all came through in the end.” – Kitty (Year 8)
You can see the girls’ performances in our Summer Soiree Series reports. A total of 65 girls received their LAMDA certificates this week, a fantastic effort.
