We offer expert 1-2-1 LAMDA training in Performance and Musical Theatre working for all Young People.  Our LAMDA classes are specifically designed to ensure that every student studying for a LAMDA qualification receives a carefully planned programme to suit their personal needs from our incredible LAMDA teachers.

Working 1-2-1 with our incredible LAMDA tutors, you'll go explore so many vital skills, enhancing both performance and communication with a focus on creating a safe environment. Classes are currently available online or in-person with our team working with you at Hook Church. 

All classes will enable students to grow in confidence and boost self-esteem, whilst most importantly enjoying themselves! Our students also learn the theory of the given subject they are studying as part of the process of working towards a practical examination.

The exams that we prepare our students for are credit bearing qualifications that reside upon the Regulated Qualification Framework (RQF). UCAS points are awarded to our students taking grades 6-8 examinations, with the maximum of 30 points achievable for grade 8 students. To put this into perspective a C grade at A levels is worth 32 points.


What Can I Explore?

We offer three different syllabuses with a number of subjects available to study and take a practical exam in.

Our LAMDA teachers can offer face to face classes from home or at Hook Church, or online classes via Zoom.

We offer 45 minute (introductory syllabus) and 1 hour classes (Performance & Musical Theatre).

LAMDA exam 1-2-1 classes start from £25.
