Schools & College Programmes

Creative activities and workshops tailored especially for schools and colleges

About Our School & College Programmes

We offer a range of creative activities and workshops specifically tailored for schools and colleges; these include radio presenting, music production and song writing.

With all of our courses, a core outcome is that young people collectively work towards creating a finished product, which they then perform and present to their peers. The courses comprise of both music theory and practical skills. With an added benefit of providing additional support to young people studying Music at GCSE, helping them to produce their own piece of music to a high standard.

After School Programmes

There is growing demand for constructive activities for young people to take part in after school hours. Many working parents struggle to arrange childcare, as they are not able to finish work by the early afternoon. Our after school programme provides parents with a more promising alternative, in a safe environment where young people are involved in activities which they can enjoy.

Our programmes encourage young people to learn new and exciting skills and most importantly, have lots of fun. The majority of after school programmes available tend to be based on traditional arts and crafts, our programme is a unique and more enjoyable way of getting young people involved in positive activities.

We currently run programmes that are funded both by parents and directly by schools. Give us the room and we will do the rest! We are happy to come in and speak with your students at an assembly, if there’s a need and interest we will be able to offer projects in term time. Our programmes are suitable for 6-16yrs olds.

Workshops start from just £150

Non-Curriculum Activities

These activities are popular among schools who are looking to offer optional student days. We deliver both full and half-day programmes. A typical day would include having our mobile music centres located in your playground, working with 100+ students to develop their skills in radio presenting, performing and working as a team. These are fast paced, engaging and inclusive workshops where in addition to supporting the development of their talents, those who take part receive a certificate of achievement.

Each non-curriculum day can be tailored and themed to your requirements i.e. anti-bullying, next steps into further education, dreams and aspirations etc. Our experienced tutors ensure that students fully engage and have great fun, and go away with memories that they will never forget.

Starting from £300+ (depending on specifications)
