As the name suggests we run after/before school LAMDA classes for children aged 6 – 11, on school days, and currently operate at Rowan Preparatory School in Claygate with 105 students and opening at Banstead Preparatory School in January 2022.

Drama Academy has been running now for 8 years, and we have a wealth of experience, knowledge and the most fantastic teachers, all of whom are of course highly qualified to teach drama and are enhanced DBS/CRB checked by Drama Academy Ltd.

The students, as well as preparing for their exams in LAMDA or Trinity exams, benefit from motivated, driven classes, building confidence, articulation and speaking to an audience, as well as having great fun preparing scripts and poems for performance and exams.

Our success in LAMDA exams has been unparalleled, with a record of over 80% of students achieving a ‘Distinction’ or ‘Merit’ in every exam taken since we started. Exams taken are Verse and Prose, Dialogue Acting and Group Acting exams.

Our Happy Clients!

“Thank you so much for all you’ve done over the years for Lucy’s drama. She’s loved every moment and you’ve given her a real love of acting so much so that she’d like to continue with it at senior school. You’ve helped her grow in confidence and she has absolutely no fear of speaking in public. We’re truly indebted to you for all you’ve given her.”

“Just a very quick note to thank you for putting on the Open Class event at Rowan this afternoon. It was good to see the huge variety of work that the girls have enjoyed over the past year and particularly nice for me as a working mum to be able to attend. All in all a very successful event! Thank you for teaching Skye so much. She has really enjoyed your sessions and learned a lot. I am sure she will feel much more confident entering the senior school drama lesson arena as a result.”
