If you are aged 13–16, a parent or guardian, find out how young people across the UK are receiving expert tuition in exciting and inspiring subjects – for free. Joining a Saturday Club is a unique chance to learn new skills and meet people who can introduce you to further education and career opportunities. There is no testing and the aim is to focus on a subject you love.

Saturday Clubs take place in universities, colleges and cultural institutions equipped with resources that are not typically available in schools. Club Members also have the opportunity to meet industry professionals who can share information and personal perspectives on the world of work.

A Saturday Club is a place to make new friends and take part in trips to London (or other major city) and a national exhibition of Club Members’ work. By participating in a Saturday Club, young people can discover their potential and develop ideas in a creative environment.

My daughter has really enjoyed Saturday Art Club and the opportunities that it has brought so far. The chance to visit Central St Martins, The Portrait Gallery and seeing the facilities available at University have been really aspirational for her. She has started GCSE Art (Year 9) this year and getting to work with a wider range of skills and techniques I think is helping to build her confidence and will hopefully have an impact on her GCSE work. The team are great and I am very grateful that she has had this opportunity.

I have gained confidence in my own work, going along with things I believe in and enjoy

I have gained confidence in creating physical structures

I’ve made friends by going out of my comfort zone
