Welcome to Sparks Film School

Youth Film Schools for Young Filmmakers

At Sparks Film Schools, we’re passionate about potential. We’re proud to support young filmmakers to gain confidence, skills and creativity.

Our youth film school offers engaging filmmaking and media classes for filmmakers age 5-18.

We help to develop creative talents and skills, both on and off camera.

“The perfect place for any young person with the first spark of a love for film, a fully-fledged passion, or who just wants to express themselves creatively.

My son has relished every second he’s been going, and while it’s embarrassing to be jealous of your own child, on this occasion I have to admit that I am.”

Inspiring Young Filmmakers Since 2010 

With over 10 years experience and over 20 film schools around the UK, Sparks is the UK’s leading provider of filmmaking and media training for children and young people. 

We strive to unlock creative talent and to build confidence in young filmmakers. 

Through filmmaking and media, we inspire and empower the creators of tomorrow to take bold steps towards their futures.

Our students have gone on to win film festivals and screen their work around the world. Some have gone on to professional acting work for film, TV and stage, as well as entry to top universities and film schools to further their filmmaking training. 

Sparks is extraordinary – brimming with exciting opportunities for kids.

My daughter has enjoyed both weekly classes and a magnificent summer club. She has loved every single second – this is active learning, there’s no chance to get bored. And the staff are the best of the best, bringing masses of lived experience of scripts and sets and enabling the kids to fearlessly explore their imaginations and leave their comfort zones.
