LAMDA Speech & Drama Tuition & Examinations

As part of the drama enrichment curriculum at Highlands School, students in all year groups have the option to take LAMDA Speech and Drama examinations.

As well as being a globally recognised qualification, LAMDA exams build confidence, develop public speaking and acting skills as well as audition technique. Higher grades even carry valuable UCAS points, used for gaining college and university places.

Suitable for all levels of experience, ages and abilities from grade 3 (beginner/year 7) to grade 8 (advanced, gold medal, year 12/13).

Classes are every Wednesday during term time, starting after normal lessons and last for 1 hour. A full timetable will be published before term begins.


Parents can choose from acting (solo or duologue), public speaking and verse & prose. Group classes are taught in small, focused groups to support social distancing requirements. Solo and online lessons are also available on request.


Tuition is supplied by an external provider with a team of qualified and experienced tutors, and students should expect to take exams once a year, usually in the summer term. Exams take place at Highlands School. Group lessons cost £10 per week per student, and can be paid termly in advance or by monthly direct debit (booking fees may apply).

For more information or to book a class, please email Mr McGinley in the drama department on mcginlew@highlearn.uk.
