Lamont Casting Agency

Lamont Drama Pupils had a fabulous time at this year’s Southport Festival, held for the first time at Meols Cop High School. Out of the 16 classes entered, Lamont pupils were awarded eleven 1st places, nine 2nd places and ten third places.

A delighted Mrs Lamont, said: “The school achieved outstanding results but more importantly every single pupil gave their absolute best. I was so proud to see pupils – from the youngest to the oldest – exuding confidence and professionalism across their verse speaking, prose reading and acting. That comes from a lot of hard work and preparation – well done guys!

“We are now moving on to our LAMDA exams and I’m looking forward to seeing the same positivity, attention to detail and attack as everyone aims for DISTINCTION in December. We had a clean sweep of DISTINCTIONS in our Summer exams so I have every confidence that we can achieve those exceptionally high standards again.”
