The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art, (LAMDA)
LAMDA have an extensive programme of internationally recognised exams in Acting, Musical Theatre, Communication, Speaking Verse and Prose, Performing Shakespeare and Musical Theatre.
LAMDA exams are about achievement – recognising and rewarding the endeavours of each individual and to provide all learners with the opportunity to develop the life skills they need to be a success: attributes such as self-confidence and the ability to communicate clearly and present ideas.
At the heart of LAMDA examinations is the recognition that the qualifications are for everyone. Across the globe, the examinations unite learners of all ages, abilities, backgrounds and cultures in enthusiasm for the English language and a desire to develop skills for life. LAMDA exams are recognised by Ofqual and the higher exams can earn students UCAS points, helping with university applications.
Theatre Arts Academy have a 100% pass rate with over 98% of exams being passed with Merits and Distinctions.
We independently tutor children and adults for LAMDA exams from 5 years .
We are a registered LAMDA examination centre and we hold exam sessions in Colchester several times a year. We are very proud of our 100% pass rate, with 99% of students passing with Merits and distinctions.
At our independent centres we tutor children for LAMDA exams from 5 years (or from 4 years in London) We may ask your child to attend an initial assessment before offering them coaching. This is not an audition but is merely to help us determine the right level to start their tutoring at.
It is important to us that our learners enjoy and look forward to their LAMDA coaching sessions .
We teach LAMDA individually and in small groups of up to six students. There are eight LAMDA lessons in each term at our Colchester centres and ten sessions per term at our London centres.
Fees include all equipment but do not include exam fees, which are set annually by LAMDA.
LAMDA coaching requires commitment and for students to gain maximum benefit from their LAMDA coaching sessions, regular attendance and practice and support at home between sessions is vital for success. If a student misses more than two sessions in any term the offer of their coaching slot may be withdrawn at the end of that term. Learners progress is recorded by tutors in their LAMDA progress records, which should also be filled in by learners at home and brought to every coaching session. The progress record can also be used by carers or parents to directly communicate with tutors each week.
LAMDA coaching fees are payable termly in advance and we do not offer a weekly payment option. Lessons missed by students for illness, holidays, performance work or for any other reason must still be paid for.
Exam fees are set by LAMDA and must be met fully by parents/fee payers when a learner is entered for an exam. Exam fees cannot be refunded once a child has been entered for an exam and parents/carers must advise us in advance if a student is unavailable for an exam date.
