Rising Aspirations Academy work alongside The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) to provide practical examinations in either Acting or Musical Theatre grading. Our students attend weekly sessions to learn skills and prepare for examinations which follow the

LAMDA Acting or LAMDA Musical Theatre syllabus.


LAMDA exams are about achievement – recognising and rewarding the endeavours of each individual – but they also aim to provide students with the opportunity to develop the life skills they need to be a success: attributes such as self-confidence, listening, empathy, determination and the ability to communicate clearly and present ideas.  


Sessions, whilst focused on exam preparation, are encouraging, stimulating and full of creativity!
