Theatre On The River has been running LAMDA Speech and Drama clubs a Ursuline Preparatory School since January 2013. Based in Wimbledon this dynamic girls school is creative and the students display a keen passion for drama and performing.
The girls have achieved outstanding LAMDA examination results each academic year (over 80% Distinction Level in Grades ‘Entry’ to Grade 2). LAMDA is an internationally recognised qualification in Acting and at Ursuline Preparatory school the girls work at the following levels: -
- Years 1-3: Introductory Examinations in Performance
- Year 4: Entry Acting Grade
- Year 5: Grade 1 Acting
- Year 6: Grade 2 Acting
We run the LAMDA Speech and Drama clubs at the following times during term time only: -
- Mondays: 3.30-4.15 Junior LAMDA
- 4.15-5.00pm Senior LAMDA
LAMDA not only enhances the girls’ love and talent for Drama; it also benefits many other areas of their academic curriculum. LAMDA encourages girls to be analytical, to explore and empathise with a diverse range of characters, ignites the imagination for creative writing and poetry composition and promotes excellent public speaking skills.
All girls are welcome onto the LAMDA course and no previous experience with the examination grades are required.
