We have a LAMDA 100% PASS RATE
All 1-2-1 students are given the opportunity to take LAMDA Exams. We enter children ages 7+ for their exams in Solo Musical Theatre, once a year at our Private Exam Centre.
LAMDA Exams are similar to a music exam and offer an ongoing measurement of progress in speech and drama. The
gradual progression through the LAMDA grades provides benchmarks for every stage of a student’s development. It helps to support a steady improvement in self-confidence, vocal and physical technique, and language awareness.
Grades 6 to 8 also count towards UCAS Points and are equivalent to GCSE / AS / A Levels.
From September 2020, 1-2-1 Students will also able to take a Trinity Singing Exam in either Classical Singing or Rock & Pop. These exams develop musicianship skills and vocal technique and encourage children to learn how to read music.
