What Are LAMDA Drama Exam Classes?

These weekly workshops run in small groups, focusing on characterisation and technique. We look at a mixture of monologues and small group scenes. The sessions are invaluable for gaining confidence, helping for auditions and, at the higher grades, gaining UCAS points.

With Victoria, our experienced LAMDA tutor, helping at every step of the way, from choosing the right monologues, to refining your performance, this is a rewarding and well-respected qualification to gain.


About Victoria, Our LAMDA Tutor

Victoria Hall is a qualified Drama teacher and Head of Performing Arts at The Mead School, Tunbridge Wells where she has been teaching for the past eight years.

Victoria has been teaching LAMDA exams for fourteen years and preparing pupils of all levels and ages for annual examinations. Her pupils have enjoyed a 100% pass rate with 80% of pupils achieving Distinction and many continue their lessons with her once they transfer to secondary school.

Lessons are in small groups, giving every pupil the opportunity to gain confidence, perform and shine. The emphasis is on fun and success. Regular showcase performances are held for family and friends.

Victoria is pleased to be joining us at Trinity Youth Theatre:
“I know Trinity Theatre extremely well having staged many school performances there over the last eight years; I am therefore particularly delighted to be able to work in conjunction with Trinity to offer the opportunity of LAMDA lessons to the wider community.”

Keeping Everyone Safe

Trinity Theatre’s Safeguarding Policy

All of our groups are led by experienced, DBS-checked professional youth theatre leaders.

As the youth theatre has expanded, we don’t have any space available for parents / carers to wait, and it can make the children feel self conscious.

If you have any concerns during the term, please speak to our Designated Safeguarding Lead, Jason Lower. He can be contacted confidentially via email or on 07587 537308.

As the situation with the pandemic continues to develop, we will comply with the most-current guidance, in addition to implementing our own additional measures to keep our members safe. We will make members aware via email of any changes we make that will affect how the group runs. Members are also welcome to take their own measures to make themselves feel safer.


Fees & Bursaries

The group costs £81.00 for the 9-week term (with the cost of one week’s sessions deducted for members’ siblings).

Exam fees are an additional cost and payable when exams are taken. Please see LAMDA’s current price list table.

We offer £9 taster sessions available for new members (deducted off the term cost if they decide to continue). Those starting later in the term will have the term fee pro-rated.

Those taking part in two or more Trinity Youth Theatre weekly workshops get a week for free with the price deducted from the term rate. Please contact us if you would like to sign up to multiple groups.

No one should be unable to take part because of financial constraints. Bursaries from The Elliott Fund are available for those on low incomes. Please contact us for more information.


Any Questions?

Please send Sam and Jason an email and they will get back to you as soon as they can.
