We offer LAMDA Acting, Mime and/or Musical Theatre exams for students aged 8-18.
Training for LAMDA exams takes place over the Spring term, 30 minutes per week for Level 1 exam students and 45 minutes per week for level 2 students. The exam will take place during the 2nd week of the Easter holidays or early in the summer term. The exam date is dependent on examiner availability and will be confirmed as soon as possible.
We offer three levels of LAMDA training. Level 1 for ages 8 to 11, Level 2 for ages 12+. Level 3 training is group based, students MUST have completed a Grade 5 LAMDA exam and classes are held weekly Sept to July - registration for level 3 exams is NOT featured on this page, contact the studio if you would like to discuss level 3 training.
Level 1 training is £28/class and Level 2 training is £35/class. We hold 12 classes for each exam entered. LAMDA exam fees vary based on the level entered, and the exam level entered will be decided by the LAMDA teacher. The exam fee and training fee is billed in 2 installments, January & February. NB: There will be no refund on any fee (exam or training) should you wish to remove yourself from the exam - our teachers time is booked up front for the term and need to be compensated for this.
LAMDA is recognised to award qualifications on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) in England by the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual), in Wales by Qualifications Wales (QiW), and in Northern Ireland by the Council for the Curriculum, Examinations and Assessment (CCEA).
The LAMDA Acting Exam learners the ability to develop their vocal, physical and interpretive skills while they delve into characters and explore the background of dramatic texts. Alongside producing authentic performances of their chosen scenes, they also gain an understanding of the context and characters within them.
The LAMDA Mime exam teachers learners how to communicate without using a single word. Through single mimed activities and fully developed scenes, our learners work on coordination and control, physical awareness and precise movements of their body to articulate emotion and characterisation in their storytelling. They are also creating their own work, expanding their physical theatre skills as they assemble their own scenes.
The LAMDA Musical Theatre exam offers learners the ability to develop their acting skills through song. They use vocal techniques to convey the right mood, and engage with the material to form a thoughtful interpretation of the song. The focus of this exam is 'acting through song' - if students already attend private vocal coaching they can AND should continue.
