What are LAMDA Examinations?


When learning to play a musical instrument, you have the option to take your 'grades', graded examinations. The same is true for drama! For over 30 years we have prepared students for two types of graded LAMDA examinations: Acting and Speaking Verse and Prose. Requirements for each discipline and grade have different requirements, in which all of our team are very well versed by now!

LAMDA is recognised as an awarding organisation by Ofqual, the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation in England, Qualifications Wales, and Council for the Curriculum, Examinations and Assessment (CCEA) in Northern Ireland. And as such, 'Level 3' (grade 6 and above) Qualifications can be used to claim UCAS points for University and College applications.

The process of preparing for and succeeding in a LAMDA Examination helps Learners, whatever their ages or aspirations, to develop a broad range of skills that will serve them throughout life. LAMDA Examinations develop a Learner’s ability to:

  • read easily, fluently and with good understanding
  • expand vocabulary to improve powers of self-expression
  • improve confidence in speaking and listening
  • memorise and recall information
  • research and create persuasive formal presentations
  • create and defend arguments
  • engage in constructive informal conversation
  • work both on their own and participate as a member of a team

No matter what direction Learners choose to follow in the future, LAMDA examinations provide the opportunity to nurture their natural abilities. These critical skills will enhance their self-confidence to engage and contribute fully, whether at school, in further education, at work or in the community. In other words, to fulfil their potential.


The cost to take LAMDA examinations varies between grades, please see here for the full fee structure (valid until 31st July 2024).
