Well done to all those who sat spring term exams. Results can take up to 6 weeks, we are expecting them any day now. For those scheduled to take exams in June, the exam dates fall on our show weekend. Therefore, we will request an exam date and time that falls in line with our rehearsal schedule. Hopefully enabling your child to do do both. However, should any problems arise we will notify you in due course.
November exams dates will be published in August and we will inform you of the date at the beginning of September. Can I remind all pupils who undertake LAMDA tuition that they attend each week on time and with the folder we have provided you with. For those parents with children have recently taken exams please check your child’s folder for the updated assessment criteria for their next exam.
