What is LAMDA?

LAMDA (founded 1861) is the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. It is one of the oldest drama schools in the United Kingdom and has a global reputation for excellence. You can find out more about LAMDA at

LAMDA began offering speech examinations to the public in the 1880s. These examinations have been refined and developed over the years. They now form a comprehensive system of performance evaluation.

LAMDA’s mission is to improve standards in communication through the spoken word and music, foster an appreciation of literature and support creative, intellectual and social development.

Students will initially choose pieces to perform with the help of their tutor. They will then work through the variety of technical and interpretational skills necessary to delivery the monologue or song through their coaching sessions. Alongside this, they will be also work on the knowledge component of the course. This is the part of the exam where they have to answer questions about their pieces and how they have created the characters for performance.

We will be offering private tuition spaces in both Musical Theatre and Acting from 2nd February 2019 - on a Saturday morning at Electric HQ (The Thames Academy, FY4).

The Level 3 LAMDA Exams (Grades 6, 7, and 8 - the Bronze, Silver and Gold Medal Exams) are further recognised within the UCAS Tariff. The UCAS Tariff is the system for allocating points to qualifications used for entry to higher education. It allows students to use a range of different qualifications to help secure a place on an undergraduate course.

Universities and colleges use the UCAS Tariff to make comparisons between applicants with different qualifications. Tariff points are often used in entry requirements (although other factors are taken into account)
