Our after-school groups – Control Alt Delete, XLR Music and Creative Hub – are listed below; they start back after the summer break on 11th September.
This Autumn we are also launching a range of creative courses and Half Term activities as part of our Digital Stories Season; for 10 weeks we’ll be exploring the art of storytelling: from podcasts and manga to animation and filmmaking.
