The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) examinations are built into the curriculum at Phoenix House. LAMDA is the UK’s largest Speech and Drama board and a nationally recognised qualification in communication and performance, which is why we feel they are an important element of a full education.


LAMDA examinations are designed to improve standards in communication through spoken word and to support the creative, intellectual and social development of the individual as a whole. LAMDA examinations are about achievement and provide an opportunity to develop important life-skills, such as self-confidence and the ability to communicate and articulate clearly.


Preparation for examinations is offered for Year 1 - 8 in all communication options.
