LAMDA Exams and Showcase 2020

On 19th February, over 30 students from Upper Fifth and Lower Sixth took their Grade 6-8 LAMDA examinations in front of our visiting LAMDA examiners. The girls had been preparing for this examination since September, with hours of rehearsal and countless lines learned and so we very much look forward to hearing how they performed when the results are released in due course. Following the examinations, our girls were joined by a supportive audience of family and friends in the Drama Studio to perform a selection of the examination pieces. The evening was a great success and the result was a credit to both the teaching staff and the students with an eclectic mix of pieces ranging from some of the great classics to edgy and contemporary pieces.

This occasion is always particularly poignant to our Lower Sixth students who finish their Grade 8 examination, marking the end of their LAMDA journey. We are extremely proud of all the girls and wish them great success for their upcoming results. I would like to thank our exceptional and dedicated team of LAMDA teachers, Ms Paul, Ms Radcliffe and Ms Hotten for the ongoing support and outstanding tuition that they offer to our students here at Withington.
