Our students love to act and immerse themselves in different characters. In addition to their curriculum Drama, we offer opportunities across all year groups to take part in plays and productions, in order to promote and enhance the craft of acting, presenting and public speaking.

Voice Production/Elocution/LAMDA

Studying elocution, voice production and taking LAMDA exams do not involve writing, but teach vitally important life skills such as public speaking, presentation technique, voice projection and clear diction.

At Eltham College Junior School these skills are taught by Kate Crane, a professionally trained Actor and Teacher with a wealth of experience teaching drama, directing shows, voice coaching and preparing young people for LAMDA exams. Kate teaches a fun and exciting curriculum through the creative disciplines of Public Speaking, Verse and Prose, Acting and even Musical Theatre. These life skills are invaluable and build tremendous confidence, regardless of which career path a young person takes.
