The children are led through their Drama by a specialist Speech and Drama Teacher.
Pupils are encouraged to take their LAMDA exams and participate in the Watford Festival. Success in both increase year on year thanks to the enthusiasm of the pupils.
All Speech and Drama pupils are given the opportunity to compete. At Aldenham we enter about 100 performances each year and we are known for being one of the main competing schools. The children compete in disciplines of verse recital, prose reading, mime and acting.
LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art)
We are registered as an exam centre and hold 2 exams sessions per year in Prep. All Speech and Drama Pupils take individual Verse and Prose exams from year three and I am looking to start group exams for Pre Prep. 100% pass rate and most achieve the highest grades.
Pupils also perform at various occasions throughout the school year amongst them; the Foundation Stage Nativity Play, Spring Concert, Harvest Festival and the always much anticipated Year 6 productions.
