Activities & screenings for schools, colleges and home educators

Activities tailored to your students

Want to watch a film linked to a module or class topic? Reward your group at the end of term with a screening? Want to showcase your group’s own productions, on the big screen? Ask about our private education screenings. 

Want to inspire the next generation of filmmakers with workshops in any number of genres and formats; from planning and shooting to editing?  Ask about our bespoke workshops.

We can offer a combination of any of the above; you choose the topic, the film and we’ll put together an tailor-made event for you.

Home Ed Filmmaking: on location

A short  3 week filmmaking project.
Monday mornings 10:15 – 12:15.
23 Jan, 30 Jan & 6 Feb.
Ages: 8+

Cost: £50.

Over this 3 quick week term children will try their hand at producing a short film on location; the nearby Southover Grange Gardens. The project will be led by our experienced on-site teacher, Anthony Gates.

Our sessions utilise easily accessible kit, such as smartphones and tablets, so we encourage you to bring along your own devices. However we have devices available on-site if you feel this is a barrier to coming along.

As always no previous experience is necessary, all the children need to bring along is their imagination and a willingness to work together in a small group.

This course is now sold out. If you’d like be added to the home ed email list to be informed as soon as a course is ready to book, please email: [email protected]
