Last week we had the pleasure of seeing 48 young people successfully sit their LAMDA exams across St Olave’s and St Peter’s.  The exams went smoothly and the pupils left their sessions with a positive outlook, having felt they had performed to the best of their abilities. Pupils ranged from the youngest learners at St Olave’s, aged 8, doing their Introductory Poetry exams and Entry Acting exams to the eldest pupils at St Peter’s, aged 16, sitting their Gold Medal Acting exams.
