Actors from years five and six treated classmates to an impromptu recital in lesson this week.

The nine to 11 year-old drama students performed a series of sketches, to celebrate another successful term of workshops with the country’s oldest drama school.

The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) is the largest statutory speech and drama awarding body in the UK and participants develop their vocal and performance skills, expand their knowledge of theatre, unlock imagination and creative thinking, build confidence and self-esteem, develop communication skills, make friends and gain qualifications.

All Gad’s year five to 11 students are invited to take part in regular in-school sessions and work towards gaining LAMDA’s Acting and Devised Drama qualification.

Remove Form tutor, Mrs Joanne Titler, said:  “The children were really impressed by the LAMDA cohort’s dramatic show, especially their comedy timing!

“Acting in front of friends can be daunting but I am very proud of how well the students worked together.  Their maturity and self-confidence inspired others to find out more about opportunities to take part in the performing arts.”
