Wood Green School is celebrating the great success of its very own LAMDA group, who have recently achieved a 100% pass rate in the latest round of national Speech and Drama exams. They were presented with their certificates on the 17th May.
The group meets every Wednesday to prepare and rehearse two short pieces of drama, which are then performed to a visiting examiner from the London Academy of Music and Drama. The students have just received their results, after a nerve-wracking day of exam presentations in March, with 23 students achieving 17 distinctions and 6 Merits.
Kitty Taylor, a student in Year 9 at the Woodstock Road school, took part in the exams and said ‘It was a different experience that felt very professional and I really enjoyed it’.
Mr. Laughlin, the LAMDA co-ordinator at Wood Green said: ‘Our school takes great pride in our students’ achievements. It has been a joy to work with the group and I am delighted that they have done so well’.
Headteacher Mr. Shadbolt added: ‘We place a very high value on all areas of learning, including activities that take place beyond the classroom. I am very proud of what our students have achieved’.
The next round of LAMDA exams are coming up in late October and work has already begun to ensure that this great success is repeated.
