Dramarama Two-Week Drama Exam Programme
for 7–16-year-olds (in Years 3-11)

Mon 11 -  Fri 15 July & Mon 18 - Fri 22 July
at South Hampstead High School, Maresfield Gardens, NW3 5SS


Our exciting two-week Drama Exam programme resumes this summer!

Students work in groups or pairs with others of the same age. They can enrol with friends or will be allocated to a group with those in the same academic year. Students enter a Trinity College group or duo drama exam. We follow the Trinity College drama exam syllabus and guidelines to ensure that students take an exam at the grade suitable for their age. Please note that students in different school years cannot work together to take the same grade exam.

The exam programme involves working on extracts from age-appropriate plays or poems and, depending on the grade taken, may also include mime and movement to music. During the intensive two-week course, students will be tutored and mentored to develop the performance technique required for drama exams while also participating in daily rehearsals for the exam set pieces.


The course comprises specialist tuition to enable students to prepare fully for a drama exam in the two-week period. Our syllabus and teaching is designed to ensure that all elements are thoroughly rehearsed so that students are completely prepared on exam day and nothing comes as a surprise. All students enrolled on the course must be available to attend on every day of the course.


Group and duo drama exams are a team effort and offer great learning opportunities for students to fine-tune their dramatic understanding, to follow stage direction, and to perform as an ensemble or in a pair; a collective, collaborative effort and approach boosts confidence and morale.

Parents/carers are invited to watch a Dress Rehearsal of the examination presentations on Wednesday 20 July. The exams will take place at South Hampstead High School throughout the day on Friday 22 July; examiner from Trinity College will come to the school for the assessments. Students can be collected/leave once their exam has finished. Please note, the exam cannot be re-scheduled or taken on another day. We ask that you please do not book other activities on exam day e.g. theatre tickets/appointments in case the exams/examiner over-runs.

Trinity College examinations are recognised qualifications in Drama and can be listed on all application forms. Grade 6 results (for students in Year 9 and above) can be converted into UCAS points and recorded on university application forms

All students receive a Drama Exam Certificate include their name, grade and result achieved. This will be posted to you as soon as it's available. We ask that all students provide an A4, hard-backed, self-addressed envelope with the correct 'large' stamp attached, on the first day of the course.
