New for January 2024: The BRIT School Partners With Westminster Kingsway College to Launch BRIT Kids
BRIT Kids will launch at Westminster Kingsway College’s King’s Cross Centre. From January 2024, the Saturday morning sessions will offer Creative and Performing Arts Classes to budding performers from the ages of 7-18.
The partnership combines the well-equipped specialist studios of WestKing’s King’s Cross Centre with The BRIT School’s specialised teaching methods and unique ethos. There is a varied timetable of classes including: acting, theatre, singing, street dance, art, fashion, music production, and digital design running from 9.30am – 2.30pm.
Tobi Deeson, BRIT Kids at The BRIT School Director said: “Creativity is being cut from many schools’ curriculums, and from a young age, therefore we want to continue to provide high-quality classes, with The BRIT School ethos at its heart. This is why BRIT Kids are coming to Kings Cross, with its values, Creativity, Community, and Challenge. Westminster Kingsway College has fantastic resources that we are delighted to be able to make available to the community on a Saturday.”
BRIT Kids classes are popular with parents and students alike. Serlom, a former BRIT Kids student said: “I love every single second of it. I was just there meeting loads of cool kids, and at a secondary school, there wasn’t a lot of creative arts, so BRIT Kids were sort of my home to really explode all of this energy that I had in my creative field.”
Parents have also noted how BRIT Kids is adept at “Empowering each child to express their creative potential” and that ‘It takes something special to get teenagers out of bed on a Saturday morning, BRIT Kids is that special’. Most important is the strong sense of creative community made available to students, with one parent saying: “For the first time in a very long time my daughter felt welcomed, supported and valued in an educational setting and was able to pursue her passion.”
A range of bursaries are available for young people aged 13-18 living in Kings Cross and the surrounding boroughs.
Applications for bursaries close on 1 December 2023.
CCCG students are also eligible for a 10% discount on all courses.
