LAMDA is one of the leading drama schools in the English-speaking world and conducts the most eminent set of public examinations in speech and drama.
The institutions that combined to form LAMDA date from 1861, making the Academy the oldest of its kind in Britain, with a long-established reputation for excellence.
Providing training for, and examinations in, various musical disciplines was originally the dominant purpose of the institution.
However, providing instruction in spoken English quickly became a core area of the Academy’s work.
The past few years have witnessed important growth for the Academy . A vital move to a larger and more visible home on the Talgarth Road in West London has enabled LAMDA to further develop the campus and training facilities for its highly talented students.
Furthermore, in June 2004, the Academy became an affiliate of the prestigious Conservatoire for Dance and Drama, reinforcing its status as a leading institution in both acting and technical theatre.
