Drama at Brockton!

Children at a local primary school were celebrating a dramatic result recently. Over 20 Brockton Primary pupils successfully passed their LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art) Communication and Performance exams. Between them the 23 youngsters received 18 Distinctions and five Merits, and they were overjoyed to be rewarded with certificates for all their hard work last term.

Brockton’s Kate Castle explains, “Brockton is one of the only primary schools in Shropshire to be a LAMDA Private Examination Centre. This arrangement allows pupils to be able to excel in exam conditions because children are already familiar with the performance space; this makes the exam process a lot less daunting, particularly for younger students. As pupils grow through the school, they become more and more confident speaking in public and less intimidated standing in front of an audience – a key life skill.”
