Celebrations with more LAMDA Success!!
16 of our students aged from 7-16 years, opted to take their LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts) Solo Acting Exams in the Spring of this year. After weeks of hard work and one to one tuition with LAMDA Tutor Mark Wakeman they all headed down to Plymouth to the examination. After a nail biting few weeks they got the results ... 100% PASSED!! All 16 students achieved a Merit or above with most achieving Distinction level!
All 16 students have even opted to take the exams again next year so they can climb up through the grades. These solo acting exams are not to be taken lightly; They require weeks of tuition alongside a great deal of practicing from the students at home with the higher grades also having to read and research plays and playwrights. Taking these exams even goes towards building UCAS points for the students further education with some of them hoping to go on to Drama Schools in the future.
We could not be prouder of what the students have achieved. They all showed such commitment to the course with each of them achieving fantastic results. We hope they are all very proud of themselves, they are certainly a credit to our school!
We've done it! Stagecoach Barnstaple's very first Music Video!
During the Spring term our students collaborated their singing, dance and drama skills to create our very first Music Video!! With a 7 minute long 'Queen Medley' the students really had their work cut out, rehearsing complex harmonies whilst dancing dramatic routines and all of this whilst staying in character! Not only did they learn the material but they also had a lot of input into each 'scene' of the video, creating story boards and throwing out ideas as the 7 minute long piece came together. Check out the final edit of our Music Video at the top of this page - it is guaranteed to have you singing along and bopping in your seat!! We are really pleased with the results!
Stagecoach Barnstaple Celebrate as they Perform at Barnstaple's Christmas Lights Switch On Event!
Earlier this year we were invited to take part in the Christmas Lights Switch on which took place on the Square, Barnstaple on Sunday 22nd November and what a brilliant day it was! 67 of our students ranging from 6-18 years took to the main stage on the square to entertain the crowds with their favorite festive songs. We had groups, soloists, duets and of course whole school songs to perform adding variety and a little Stagecoach magic to a great event! Our brave singers received fabulous applause from the crowd and local Christmas shoppers, we did such a good job that the organisers have even booked us in for next year already!
