The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) is a world-class drama and music school based in the UK and is a leader in graded examinations, setting the standard for speech, communication and drama around the world. The top LAMDA qualifications, at Bronze, Silver and Gold levels, are recognised by UCAS and are also looked on favourably by UK universities. LAMDA courses are open to all students at La Grande Boissière from grades 4 to 13 (ages 8 to 19). 
 
LAMDA examinations in Musical Theatre help students to develop their acting and singing skills. Like our Acting exams, they encourage empathy and self-awareness, as learners are required to present believable characters through both acting and song.
