Who is this course for?

This course is suitable for children aged 12 to 17 years. It is open to all ability levels and levels of experience. Parents are not expected to accompany children on these courses. All our staff are DBS checked.

The course is accessible for young people of all abilities, however we suggest speaking to us if the young person has a disability that may impact on writing. There is a learning support worker and a parent or carer may assist their child if requires 1-1 support. Carers must book a complimentary ticket if attending a course to provide support. The room is wheelchair accessible.
