JK Theatre Arts offer the opportunity for your child to train towards a recognised drama award with a specialised LAMDA tutor.

LAMDA (London Academy of Music & Dramatic Art)

LAMDA has become the largest statutory speech and drama awarding body in the UK, offering the most refined and comprehensive system of performance evaluation by experts in education, acting and communication. LAMDA examinations are designed to equip learners, whatever their age or aspirations, with a range of transferable skills that will serve them throughout life.

The exams allow students to use a range of different qualifications and at the higher levels gain recognised UCAS tariff points which go towards university entry requirements. We currently offer exam tuition in Acting, Verse & Prose and Devising Drama.

LAMDA Sessions

The sessions will include exploring the syllabus and ensuring students understand what preparation is required for the exam. The sessions will also include vocal warm-up exercises, devising drama activities, discussion work and shaping the exam material chosen for each student. Some of the many benefits of taking the exams are to increase confidence in the physicality of speech and language along with improving communication and conversational skills.

We run our sessions with the focus on the student’s own rate of progress with additional benefits including the development of observational skills, self- discipline, non-judgemental positive self- assessment and the stimulation of creativity. The sessions enable students to further build and hone their acting skills in voice, character development, physical & emotional interpretation and knowledge of playwrights.
