The National Saturday Club runs in 60 locations across the UK, in colleges, universities and museums. As well as more than 100 hours of specialist tuition, young people between the ages of 13-16 also benefit from visits to museums and galleries, masterclasses from leading practitioners and an exhibition of their work in London’s Somerset House.

About Saturday Club

Our Saturday Club is free and is led by expert tutors who will give attendees (students between the ages of 13-16) a chance to learn the skills used in VFX, Games and Animation - all whilst developing their Art & Design skills and opening up new career prospects.

How it works

We've partnered with the Saturday Club to give students an opportunity to explore their creativity, learn about new and exciting subjects and discover how the skills they'll learn in Animation, Games and VFX can lead to creative careers.

National Saturday Clubs benefit young people in many ways, including:

  • Raising attainment – 80% of Club members achieve at least one grade higher than expected at GCSE in related subjects.
  • Leading to progression – 30% go on to foundation, diploma or undergraduate study.
  • Creating aspiration – by the end of the year, 70% want to pursue a careers in an industry they’ve had a taster of in the Club.
  • Enhancing life skills – as well as nurturing their developing talents, taking part also improves members’ confidence and self-esteem and builds their time management, team work and communications skills.

We believe that every 13–16 year old should have the opportunity to study subjects they love on Saturdays at their local university or college. Over the academic year, their Saturday Club tutors and industry professionals will build their skills, nurture their talent and inspire them towards further and higher education and careers that will be right for them.
