Sparks Film School for Ages 5-18

Why a Sparks Film School Franchise?

Sparks is a growing network of youth film schools for children and young people.

We opened our first youth film school in 2010, in South West London. Word spread and by 2016 Sparks had grown to six youth film schools owned and operated by our Head Office. 

We introduced film school franchise partners to our network, to offer our unique filmmaking courses to children all over the UK. 

There are now 27 Sparks film school franchises, with more set to launch this year. 

Each film school franchise offers a unique business opportunity. You’ll join the leading brand in film and media activities for children and young people. There is fantastic financial potential too.

Student testimonials

Rachel Woolcott


Great camp to develop creativity and for children to learn about film making. In this short period of time the teachers were engaging; the group developed a story for a short film, acted, set the scenes and were behind the camera, my son loved the activities.


Young Filmmaker

I've learned so much here I don't know where to start.
I’ve learned how to shoot a film properly, how to compose a shot. I’ve learned how to edit, how to take an idea and turn it into something you can see on the screen. It’s been amazing.

My 7 year old had the best time at Sparks summer camp, it really helped him grow his confidence too! He was initially reluctant to be in front of the camera, we were reassured by Sparks that he wouldn't need to but once he was there, he actually really enjoyed having a few lines in the final movie :) He still speaks highly of his time at Sparks several weeks later!
