peripatetic Speech & Drama 


As a means of studying Speech and Drama, Elvin Acting can take pupils through LAMDA Examinations. Within schools, a dedicated teacher visits you weekly to see the students wishing to participate. There is little organisation to do for the school as all our teachers are freelancers holding enhanced DBS checks and are well versed in the LAMDA syllabus. Our contract is directly with the parents taking all the admin away from the school. If you wish to offer your students the opportunity of professional peripatetic speech & drama training, all we need is a classroom. 


The examinations are optional and children may wish to participate in lessons to further their skills and confidence without the pressure of exams. We can also enter pupils into local festivals such as The Mid-Somerset Festival held in Bath and informal presentations at school to provide extra performance opportunities.
