Exams are accredited to the Regulated Qualification Framework (RQF) giving equivalent points towards GCSEs, A Levels and UCAS Points.
Our Acting LAMDA lessons are designed to develop a range of skills that will serve children in all aspects of their lives, unlock the imagination, increase communication skills and build self-confidence and self-esteem. Lessons also focus on taking direction, expanding characterisation knowledge and evolving performance skills to the highest level.
Our Singing LAMDA Lessons help to build confidence, teach breath support and control, pitching and articulation. It is important to gain training and guidance with singing to prevent vocal damage and strain. Students can learn a variety of styles and genres including Musical Theatre, Pop, Rock and many more.
All of our LAMDA teachers are experienced professional actors and actresses with degrees from drama school and are DBS checked.
