Tavistock College - Together: we care, we challenge, we excel


We want our young people at Tavistock College to have the best opportunity to present themselves with confidence and pride.

Students are encouraged to take LAMDA* sessions as an enrichment activity in Sixth Form**. These are small group sessions run by a qualified LAMDA teacher with nearly 25 years’ experience in this field.

  • The course is designed to enable young people to develop a range of skills including
    excellent oral communication
  • the use of body language and voice
  • confidence in personal presentation
  • the selection of appropriate subject matter
  • research and presentation

The main aim is to build confidence when speaking in a more formal setting such as interviews for university or jobs. These internationally renowned and Ofqual recognised qualifications equip students to present themselves exceptionally in a wide range of scenarios.

Whilst there are obvious links to the Performing Arts these qualifications are suitable for all and may have particular benefits for those wishing to go on to study law, medicine, business, journalism, English, marketing, teaching.

Qualifications can be gained in:

  • Public speaking
  • Speaking of verse and prose
  • Acting
  • Mime
  • Improvisation
  • Musical Theatre

The LAMDA sessions can be used as the skills element of the Duke of Edinburgh awards or in conjunction with Silver Arts Award
