LAMDA (The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts) is the UK’s largest statutory speech and drama awarding body. LAMDA began offering speech examinations to the public in the 1880s and since then the examinations have been refined and developed into a comprehensive system of performance evaluation. At Stanhope Primary School we are delighted to have become a Private Registered Centre for LAMDA.. This means that the children will now be taking their examinations at Stanhope Primary School.
LAMDA Examinations are designed to develop the skills necessary for effective oral communication and public presentation. These examinations will benefit native English speakers as well as those for whom English is a second language. We prepare and enter children for LAMDA Exams through out all stages as we believe that it is important to be able to measure children’s progress in speech and drama, gives children a sense of achievement, which improve communication skills, increase self-confidence and help them develop strong social skills.
