The Lent Term was a productive one for LAMDA pupils who were able to take their exams at the College while also recording their own performances for a sequel to last year’s successful LAMDA in Lockdown video.

The examinations in March produced another stellar set of results, particularly for the Grade 8 pupils who all achieved Distinction, giving them the maximum 30 UCAS credit points in the process.

Of the 25 pupils who took and passed the exams, 18 were awarded a Distinction and six received Merit grading. A special mention goes to Georgia (K) who has now achieved Distinction in both her Acting and Speaking in Public Grade 8, earning 60 UCAS points.

Well done to the Grade 8 pupils: Isabel (I), Speaking in Public, Distinction 97/100; Georgia (K), Speaking in Public, Distinction 89/100; Annabelle (I), Acting, Distinction 89/100; Isabella (J), Acting, Distinction 85/100; Isabella (J), Acting, Distinction 86/100; Gabriel (H), Acting, Distinction 88/100; Oscar (D), Acting, Distinction 85/100; Max (F), Acting, Distinction 90/100.

Throughout the remote term, LAMDA lessons remained fun and enjoyable, providing a creative outlet for pupils in unusual circumstances.

Following on from the success of last year’s LAMDA pupils, this year’s creative young people recorded themselves delivering a Verse piece, an Acting short or a demonstration of Speaking in Public.

16 pupils submitted a range of performances, from William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Wilfred Owen’s Anthem for Doomed Youth to public speeches on Housing Crises and Artificial Intelligence.
