Who are courses for?

Future Creatives' courses are for all students aged 7 to 17 who enjoy being creative and imaginative. Our students can experience everything from drawing and painting to graphic design and sculpture.

Our courses also focus on well-being - taught in small classes, students benefit from close care and attention from our tutors.

Courses are split into programmes for primary and secondary school students with their own specific aims:

These course are for primary school students, who want to explore their creativity outside of the classroom.

This programme is designed to:

  • Develop new creative skills and techniques
  • Build friendships and communities
  • Promote well-being and confidence
  • Work on creative projects

11 to 17 year old programme

Our courses help secondary school students develop their skills and provide guidance for GCSEs, A-levels and beyond.

This programme is designed to:

  • Provide an environment to flourish
  • Help students create a portfolio of work
  • Advise on GCSE / A level choices
  • Give insight into future career opportunities
