LAMDA Exams ...

Here at Applause we believe in giving every child as many opportunities as possible. LAMDA examinations are a great attribute, and show that a young person is willing to work hard at something to achieve it. The LAMDA class is on Saturday mornings - 9:am at Birkenshaw Community Hall. 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. Each exam structure starts at Entry Level, then goes from Grades 1-8. Pupils will be judged from their abilities and age before a decision is made about which grade to start at.
