We provide fun and learning at the same time!
Our average age teens are 12/13 – 15/16 years but we also welcome 10 years and upwards, with groups usually divided by ages when we can – so you won’t normally get mixed with much older or much younger teens.
But we do strive to get everyone working together, whatever the age, background, interests, etc.!

While you (parents) work (or have some time off…), your Teens learn new skills, get to meet new like-minded teens and explore creativity in a friendly and innovative environment.

Recent Teens’ testimonials:

Photography in the sun! 🌞

If you’re new to this page (and us), welcome!
We continue to welcome many new Teens, add new courses to inspire, and have new tutors joining us to inspire and join in the fun of opening eyes to the creative world around you!

I (Julia) am delighted to have some help as our Teens courses become ever more popular – with lovely new faces and some of you returning either after a break for revision and exams – hope they’re going well! – and others as ongoing regulars. We’re delighted to see you all!

We continue to receive excellent feedback from both parents and students of how positive an education they receive. Thank you to all for cards, delicious chocolates and amazingly decorated biscuits, as well as invitations to far flung places! We’ll be on our way!

We love what we do and it is clear to us that you and your Teens love joining us! For us it really is about that spark of interest and the twinkle in their eyes we see kindled. And how eyes are opened to the world around us. Exciting times with lots more to come. We hope to see you all very soon! 🙂
Julia (Teens Creative Director)

What parents say their Teens benefit from, including and beyond the photographic:

  • independence in travel around London
  • contribute to the group dynamic through being alert to logistical and photographic opportunities
  • responsibility to themselves and the group
  • social skills
  • commitment to an idea
  • project management
  • self expression
  • confidence through voicing opinions more readily, which feeds into confidence at school.

Also, in this exploration of growing personalities we are always excited to see some Teens show almost the opposite of what parents report or their teacher appear to say. We strive to offer an environment in which Teens can blossom and discover beyond school, and your kind comments prove we are getting it right. 🙂

Experimenting with light and darkness!

COME AND JOIN US!
