Speech and Drama examinations – 100% Distinction grades!

Monday 10 July 2023 | By Megan Connor

Teesside High School pupils are celebrating following a further clean sweep of Distinction awards in their recent Speech and Drama examinations.

24 students from across our Prep and Senior Schools completed an examination with the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) earlier this term.

LAMDA is our chosen examiner for our thriving Speech and Drama provision, and pupils have been working very hard in their co-curricular lessons all year.

Their task, to perform in front of a visiting examiner, is no mean feat, and we were delighted to receive the official results very recently which indicated that every single Teesside High School pupil achieved the very highest grade – a Distinction.

This follows examinations in April – which also secured a 100% Distinction rate!

Ms Jackson, Speech and Drama Teacher at Teesside High School, said: “We are delighted with these results – another clean sweep of Distinctions!

“Speech and Drama is a fantastic way for students to develop important skills such as creativity and confidence.

Feedback from the visiting examiner showed that our pupils were particularly able at creating and delivering a coherently structured and carefully prepared theatrical performance. He commented on pupils’ strong sense of team spirit, underpinned by personal conviction and individual contribution.

“We could not be more proud of our wonderful students.”
