Many students enjoy working towards an academic award as this provides them with a sense of achievement. We are a LAMDA registered centre which means students are able to take their exams in a comfortable and familiar place. The Lamda qualifications are carefully graded and develop excellent communication skills in a range of subjects whilst providing UCAS points from Level 3. This provides added value in the qualification based environment in which we now live. Examination preparation is not however mandatory and lessons are arranged based upon the requirements of each and every individual.
