My daughter has attended various holiday clubs over the years but Sparks Summer Shoots knocks it put the park!
She was so excited to go each morning and would not stop talking about it when I picked her up. She’s now begged me to sign her up for the term time classes. I can’t recommend this enough, for something creative, confidence building and fun.
About Sparks Film School Dorking & Leatherhead
Sparks Film School Dorking welcomes young filmmakers to our fun film classes and school holiday camps.
Our main aim is to encourage and inspire creativity and confidence in children and teenagers, aged 7-18 and to help them develop their skills in filmmaking.
We meet every Saturday at Oakfield School, Fetcham, where over the course of 10 weeks, young film-makers collaborate and produce exciting, fun-filled movies. In the school holidays, half term camps offer children and teenagers the chance to unlock their creativity, gain new skills and discover the fun of movie making.
Group sizes at our film school are small (max. 12) for all our workshops, with high staff ratios to provide a high quality experience. All Sparks instructors are trained and DBS-checked.
Sparks Film School Dorking is an OFSTED approved provider which means that classes and camps can be booked using Childcare Vouchers or the Childcare Choices platform. Please contact us below to set up a Childcare Voucher account.
“Hi, I’m Mark from Sparks Film School Dorking & Leatherhead…
I have been teaching media and film for over 20 years; as well as having had extensive experience working in the film and TV industries.
All the team here at Sparks Film School Dorking have a wealth of skills and knowledge to share with young film makers and we’re all passionate about helping them to develop their skills and creativity.
I am driven by a passion for the moving image and I take inspiration from the creativity and imagination of the children I teach. Through our filmmaking courses for kids, I hope to further inspire them.
Young people see the world in unique ways and their imaginations know no limits. Providing them with the tools and skills to unlock their creativity is both a privilege and a joy. Film making should be fun so by encouraging their passions and helping them to discover their skills, we will be nurturing the story makers of the future.
I aim to make Sparks Film School Dorking part of the local community, with film making activities for children and parents in Dorking and Surrey. I’d love to welcome you along to experience all the fun of the film set with us soon.
Mark Piper, Head of Sparks Film School Dorking & Leatherhead
