Wellington School Pupils Celebrate Dramatic Success

14 Aug 2019

The Drama Department at Wellington School is celebrating after receiving the best set of LAMDA results the School has ever seen. 

Wellington School pupils have proved themselves to be splendid all round performers as this year more students than ever before sat the challenging London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art examinations.

There was greater uptake for these exams than ever, with everyone achieving either Merit or Distinction grades. More excitingly, for the first time at Wellington, the pupils achieved more overall Distinction grades. 

Every LAMDA student must learn, direct and perform up to three pieces from different time periods and answer questions on their pieces and drama practitioners used. Our students performed an eclectic mix of contemporary and older pieces including the works of Ibsen, Tom Morris and Shakespeare.

This year, 55 candidates who sat the examinations and every one of them passed at either Merit or Distinction level, with 86% being awarded the top grade. A fantastic achievement from our talented performers.

This is a splendid achievement for all involved and we look forward to another superb set of results next year.
