  • What is this Summer School about?

    The Film-making Summer School will train students to make films like a professional. They will learn about cinematic technique, story-boarding and more. In addition, they will visit the popular Warner Brothers’ Harry Potter Studio Tour, to see how the experts made those films.

    However, our young learners will also have the opportunity of socialising with the rest of the students in the school, through entertaining activities in the afternoons and evenings, excursions and more! All of these are to encourage their confidence while speaking in English.

    Film-making is one of the programmes that we offer at LAL Berkhamsted, our Digital Summer School. Discover more about everything your child will learn with us!
