LAMDA is one of the UK’s oldest and most respected awarding bodies. They have been offering practical examinations in communication and performance subjects for over 130 years. In this time, the qualifications have helped hundreds of thousands of candidates of all ages and abilities to develop lifelong skills.

How does LAMDA work at Felsted?
Students will take their 30 minute class during the school day, the classes are on a carousel and therefore the same lesson will not be missed in a 4 week period. They will also have the opportunity to perform their work in a presentation evening in the Hunt Theatre. Minimal prep is required as the majority of the work will be completed in class. Those who wish to take more than one syllabus are welcome to change syllabi after each exam.
