During this difficult COVID-19 time we very much view examinations as a luxury. Our team are working incredibly hard behind the scenes to provide classes and online programmes, but we do need fee payments in order to pay our team. Everyone is welcome to begin working on an examination. It would however be inappropriate to pay for a summer examination if no summer fee payment has been made to Sharpe. We have therefore introduced a minimum payment requirement should you wish to take an August examination.

  • Providing you booked onto our LAMDA Acting course in the Spring term, paid your £25.00 LAMDA course fee and have made at least a 50% contribution towards your Musical Theatre summer fees you may work towards a summer exam. Assessment & Exam fees are below.
  • If you did not book onto our LAMDA course and wish to begin, you may work towards a summer exam providing you have paid a 75% contribution towards your Musical Theatre fees. Assessment & Exam fees are below.
  • If you would like to work towards a December exmaination you may do so without any fees due at this time. A LAMDA course fee of £25.00 will be payable in the Autumn term alongside your Autumn term Musical Theatre Fees. Assessment and exam fees are below.
