Staff and pupils at Sunninghill Prep School are celebrating outstanding success in the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) Exams. In the latest set of examinations, pupils achieved a 100% pass rate from 108 exam entries, with 95% of pupils attaining Distinctions and Merits.
Two Sunninghill pupils even achieved an amazing 100% in their exams.
Pupils took exams in a variety of disciplines including verse, prose and devising drama.
Sunninghill’s Headmaster, John Thorpe, said, “What a fantastic set of results. I’ve seen all the hard work and hours of practice that our dedicated staff and pupils have put in so I’m not surprised at the success they’re all enjoying now. Dramatic art is very much a central part of life at Sunninghill and we are delighted with this achievement”.
Lecca Moss, Head of Music, added, “I’m so very proud of all our pupils. I know first-hand how much practice took place and I can’t praise our staff and pupils highly enough. The standards set by LAMDA is incredibly high and we are really proud to be in our 8th year as a LAMDA Examining Centre.”
Iris and Kitty, both pupils in year 2 at Sunninghill said, “We were excited and nervous when we did our exam, and we both thought that we’d done quite well and would get a Merit. When our teacher told us that we’d got Distinctions with 100% we were amazed and proud.”
Erin, a year 6 pupil said, “I worked in a group on Devising Drama Grade 1 – it was fun to be in working in a group, we really pulled together and I was really proud to get a Distinction.”
