Art & Design Saturday Club

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

We've partnered with the National Saturday Club to give those between the ages of 13-16 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. Our Saturday Club is free and led by expert tutors.

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.
