Well done to our Senior drama students who have been commended for gaining awards from The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA).
The 16-strong group of Y7-11 Seniors was presented with certificates in assembly after completing LAMDA examinations in acting.
The higher education provider is the oldest drama school in the UK and accredited by the UK Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA).
Gad’s drama teacher, Mrs Chenaie Roberts, said: “I am extremely proud of my students who all worked exceptionally hard perfecting their pieces.”
The LAMDA examination requires students to perform a monologue or group recital and demonstrate an understanding of the characters and situation.
Gad’s offers Juniors and Seniors the opportunity to take part in the extra-curricular sessions which build-on the school’s existing drama lessons and clubs.
Participants develop their vocal and performance skills, expand their knowledge of plays, unlock imagination and creative thinking, build confidence and self-esteem, develop communication skills, make new friends and gain qualifications.
For the highest three levels, the Bronze, Silver and Gold medals, there is also the benefit of gaining UCAS points.
On this occasion, the Gad’s cohort gained two Bronze badge medal at grade 6 and merits and distinctions from grade 2-5.Posted on
