A Fantastic Set of LAMDA Examination Results and Classes Continue on Zoom!

Our London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts (LAMDA) examinations were held in March and the girls have been eagerly awaiting their results. Finally they have arrived and what a fantastic set of results they are!

About a third of pupils at Manor House School, Bookham now choose to take LAMDA lessons as a co-curricular activity. They use it to improve confidence in speaking and listening, in delivering formal presentations, in creating and defending arguments in debate, in improving self-expression by expanding vocabulary and for memorising and recalling information. It can also help students in working successfully alone and in a team.

Sixty seven (67) girls received Distinctions and two girls received a very high Merit in the Spring term examinations. Everyone worked so hard on their examination pieces and should be extremely proud of themselves. What a great achievement!

Unfortunately not everyone was able to take their examination in time before the lockdown. For those girls, LAMDA will be re-scheduling their exam dates for early in the Autumn term.

In the meantime, classes are continuing by Zoom and the performances get more and more creative by the week! From a cooking show with a live chicken in it to a dancing dog interrupting a news broadcast. There is never a dull moment in our LAMDA classes and all the girls have adapted brilliantly to performing online.

If anyone is interested in taking up LAMDA tuition, please email Mrs E Hamer at email: - LAMDA Tuition is available from Year 1 in the Prep School to Year 11 of the Senior School.
