Value for money

Our workshops are always free to young people and the costs to school partners are heavily subsidised thanks to our generous friends and supporters.

Our approach

How we work with schools

Building skills for life

From re-engaging your students in learning, to helping raise their expectations and aspirations, we work in partnership with schools and teachers to understand your needs.

Our work ranges from curriculum provision and topic-based projects, to staffing solutions and skills-based programmes. 

Our projects foster confidence and creativity in your classroom, and can be anything from a one-off workshop to a comprehensive year-long programme.

We work with schools in the east London boroughs of Hackney, Islington and Tower Hamlets and are happy to discuss working on projects with clusters of schools.

Young writers

Who we work with

We help young people up to 18. We work with targeted learners, whole class groups, or even the entire school depending on your needs.

We always look to provide our young writers with opportunities for progression, and many young people are eligible to join our free weekly community writing labs.

Our projects can be delivered in an intensive block or regular sessions throughout the term, either during the school day or out of school hours.

We usually deliver our programmes in your school setting, but we also host sessions at our magical writing centre, hidden behind Hoxton Street Monster Supplies.
