Pupils Secure High Marks in LAMDA Examinations
Pupils from the Stamford Endowed Schools have once again surpassed themselves in the London Academy (LAMDA) Speech and Drama examinations with 254 pupils passing their examinations over the past three terms. The examinations have been passed in a variety of performance based subjects such as Acting, Public Speaking, Devised Performance, the Recital of Verse and Prose, Reading for Performance and Mime.
Of these, 13 achieved a Pass (scoring at least 50%), 113 gained a Pass with Merit (65%) and 128 managed a mark of 80% or more to achieve a Pass with Distinction.
At the higher examination grades 33 pupils passed at Bronze Medal, 9 at Silver Medal and 18 at Gold Medal – 10 of whom achieved a Distinction, including Katherine Gibbons who attained the highest mark of the year – a magnificent 97%.
These wonderful results represent a massive commitment in terms of both time and effort by all the pupils involved. Their teachers – Mr. Galloway and Mrs. Wigmore at the Junior School and the High School and Mr. Galloway at Stamford School – congratulate them warmly on the high standard they achieved.
