Earlier in the year, the London Academy of Music & Dramatic Arts (LAMDA) and The Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) examined our BIS HCMC students in Acting and Reading for Performance as well as technique, understanding and musical perception.
Following our students’ incredible set of results we took the opportunity this week to recognise and reward the hard work of all the students who took on the challenge of one of these exams last year. It was also a chance for us as a school community to give an extra congratulations to those who achieved the highest grades of Distinction in both the LAMDA and ABRSM syllabi.
One of our students Holly Van Zwanenberg discusses her experience of LAMDA; “I think it seems intimidating but once you've learned your pieces and feel confident to perform, being able to act as a person only you know and you have created is actually quite fun.”
Both the Music and Drama departments are looking forward to welcoming in the next set of exam students, whether they are returning, or new to the challenge over the year ahead.
