Harris Academy’s leading acting students set new records collecting three silver medals for our first Grade 7 entrants, one bronze medal and six distinctions in recent LAMDA examinations. Students’ unprecedented achievement was guided with the support of Head of Performing Arts Chris Browning and leading LAMDA practitioner Trisha Davies. Tricia, who has taught LAMDA for over 30 years said, ‘The Harris Academy is highly unusual in giving students the opportunity and training to do LAMDA exams as part of a state school programme. Obtaining more Distinctions than Merits with the unusually high marks at all levels is an outstanding achievement bearing comparison to any school (private or state) nationwide!’


Jake P who achieved a Grade 7 and silver medal for Musical Theatre said,‘ LAMDA is proof that hard work pays off. LAMDA is also a fun way to get UCAS points!’


Deputy Head-girl Charlotte H said, ‘I have loved my LAMDA experience. I now believe I can do anything I set my mind to; it just takes hard work. Without LAMDA, I doubt that I would have the confidence I have today.
