Schools and colleges programme

Activities tailored to your students

Want to watch a film linked to a module you are covering or reward your learners with a screening for fun? Want to inspire the next generation of filmmakers with workshops in animation or filmmaking? Want to showcase the learners’ own productions on the big screen? Or maybe you wish to combine all of these in a week long event culminating in a screening and celebration? All of these are options at Depot.

Depot is offering a range of bespoke screenings, workshops and events for schools and colleges. You choose the film, the topic and the format and we’ll put together an event tailor-made for you.

‘Your cinema is such a brilliant resource for us. The staff are so helpful and charming and the facilities are amazing.’

We have three screens and a wide range of films to choose from. Just let us know a date and we will do what we can to screen your choice of film. The screenings should be on a weekday and finish before 3pm. The prices vary according to the size of the screen.

Screen 3 – Up to 38 people – £200
Screen 2 – Up to 128 people – £400
Screen 1 – Up to 142 people – £500

Note: The cost of the film is added to this (usually less than £20)


We have an in-house filmmaking expert with many years of filmmaking and teaching experience. He can run workshops focused on editing, making documentary or fictional shorts or a range of animation techniques. These can be themed to tie in with your learners’ interests or a specific subject. He will run a workshop for up to 12 learners from 10-3 for £300.
