Thirty nine students have achieved the most amazing set of LAMDA results yet – all passed their exams with either Merit or Distinction grades! The students, from Year 7 through to Year 13, have been studying for their exams as part of their extracurricular activity programme at St Mary’s and were examined in either ‘Acting’ or ‘Speaking in Public’.

Twenty five students took the ‘Acting’ exams ranging from Grade 4 up to Grade 7. Thirteen of the students gained a pass with Merit and eleven got pass with Distinction. The six students who took Grade 6 and Grade 7 exams also achieved UCAS points that will count in any application they make for university in the future.

Fourteen students took ‘Speaking in Public’ exams ranging from Level 1 Grade 3 to Level 3 Grade 6. Four students achieved pass with Merit and ten students achieved pass with Distinction. Of the eight students who took Level 3 Grade 6 exams, four achieved pass with Merit and four achieved pass with Distinction and all got Bronze Medals.

These achievements really support personal development and students who have participated in LAMDA classes have not only really grown in their confidence to speak in public, but also in class and when making presentations related to their work. Any student interested in being part of the LAMDA classes, need to see Mrs Crawford or Miss King.

Congratulations to all students involved on these excellent achievements – we look forward to your next set of results!!
