Pupils rewarded with top marks in LAMDA Exams
This week we are able to finally share how very proud we are of all the children for their excellent set of LAMDA examination results.
Almost 50 exams were taken with a 100% pass rate, and a staggering 65% passed with Distinction, and 33% with Merit. The exams ranged from Year 2, taking an introductory exam, right through to Grade 3 in Year 6. We applaud all the children for putting in such a tremendous effort to showcase their talent.
Mrs Reynolds was impressed with how the children had prepared, and worked with them on rehearsals to ensure any nerves were well managed and that their experience was positive.

Thank you to all the children for displaying patience in waiting for their certificates: unfortunately LAMDA were delayed processing them due to the national lockdown and closure period last term.
LAMDA at Eversfield
Mrs Reynolds is an examiner for the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) and teaches a fun and exciting curriculum at Eversfield preparing children for LAMDA acting and communication examinations with excellent results.
LAMDA’s performance examinations use drama to develop self-confidence, physical presence and a strong speaking voice. LAMDA’s communication examinations provide the opportunity to develop a clear speaking voice, positive body language and self-confidence by exploring different uses of spoken English. Some children take both examination routes.
Eversfield benefits by being registered with LAMDA as a Private Examination Centre which offers our pupils ease of location and greater flexibility when scheduling dates for examinations.
Exams are regulated by OFQUAL and from Grade 6 gain UCAS points so they are a useful springboard in preparation for University entrance. Starting in Year 2 with introductory exams, and moving up each year as we hold exams annually, we reach Grade 3 at Eversfield, and many children go on to continue LAMDA exams at their secondary schools.
The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) began offering speech and drama examinations to the public in the 1880s. Since then, these examinations have been refined and developed by experts in education, performance and body, and today LAMDA has a reputation for excellence worldwide.
