LAMDA lessons for your students

LAMDA is a top drama school in London, offering world-class qualifications in Speech and Drama.

 

WestEndIn has partnered with LAMDA to offer students lessons in Public Speaking, Mime, Acting, Verse and Prose: Reading for Performance and many more communication-based subjects.

 

We currently run LAMDA lessons at 25 schools across London, Surrey, Essex, Kent, Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, either as part of the curriculum or as extra-curricular activities.

 

Our aim is to help students develop a love, appreciation and understanding of language and literature through performing and speaking aloud. We also focus on communication training, helping students to articulate and express themselves through speech.

Benefits of these lessons include:

 

  • Increased student self-confidence
     

  • Improved student communication and presentation skills
     

  • Developing student creativity
     

  • Opportunities to cover a range of texts in a short time
     

  • Valuable UCAS points for students at Grade 6 or above
     

Opportunities to perform to a public audience

 

Theatre workshops for schools

Similar to our longer-term bespoke courses, our workshop days are perfect for students to get a taste of real theatre experience: they’re just faster!

 

Your students will be taught real West End routines, songs and scenes by performers who work in Theatreland every day. Together, we’ll get them motivated and inspired to perform at their best, with confidence and flair.

Workshop topics include:

 

  • Musicals

  • Ancient Greek drama

  • Shakespeare plays

  • Modern plays

  • Stage combat

  • Complicité and mime

  • Acting Training

Interview and presentation skills for students

Communication and presentation skills are invaluable to students, both at school and in the world of work.

 

Equipping your students with confident delivery and public-speaking skills not only makes them better learners, but will prepare them for professional life in their chosen careers.

 

Whether you’re covering the Speaking element of the English GCSE, Key Stage 4 preparing for their first work experience placement, or sixth formers practicing for university interviews, your classes will master:

  • How to manage nerves

  • How to present with confidence

  • How to manage their vocal delivery

  • How to use positive body language

  • How to inspire and influence an audience

Support for arts education

Unfortunately, we live in times where arts education isn’t always championed by the government, or by the curriculum. Many schools and community projects have had budgets slashed or removed altogether, taking away vital enrichment and opportunities for students.

 

To champion arts education and drama in schools, we’ve set up a cost-effective package specifically to support you in these challenging times. The package includes workshops in music, dance and drama and is designed to develop students strengths and wellbeing.

Studies show that an arts-rich education enhances students’ inner-lives, making them happier and healthier. Other benefits include:

  • Reduced stress levels

  • Reduced depression and anxiety

  • Increased self-esteem and confidence

  • Increased creativity and problem-solving

  • Keeping body and brain active

  • Improved memory and reading skills

  • Better strength, posture and flexibility
