LAMDA Speech and Drama classes are offered as an extra curriculum subject at lunchtimes under the wing of the Maelisa McGuinness Theatre Production School. LAMDA is one of the highest and most prestigious examination boards for Speech and Drama. Examinations from grade 6 (bronze medal) – grade 8 (gold medal) are recognised by UCAS and will give students extra points, to help them go on to their chosen Universities and Drama schools.


These classes provide a platform for children to gain confidence, work as a team and improve conversational skills. Pupils from Year 1 upwards have the opportunity to work towards the LAMDA examinations in Verse Speaking or Acting and in the last examination session more than 70% of the students gained Distinction and 30% gained Merit in their exams, which were outstanding results.
