Creative Writing

Writing creatively can be a wonderful experience for many. According to research, there are 5 key benefits to creative writing:

  1. It encourages us to use our imaginations.
  2. It develops reading, writing and learning skills.
  3. It can develop self confidence and identity.
  4. It teaches empathy, as we place ourselves in someone else’s shoes.
  5. It provides an emotional outlet.

We already run a weekly Creative Writing Club, which is very informal – there are no red marking pens! The children are encouraged to try out their ideas, often pictorially to begin with, in a relaxed environment.

However, we have been frequently asked to provide something more structured, which supports the curriculum. And so we have shuffled our time-table around, in order to offer the following class:


The class is for children who are capable writers already, but find it difficult to ignite their creative spark.

As with all of our tuition, classes are £16.50 for 50 minutes, paid weekly in advance. However, if you book and pay for a term in advance, we are offering one free lesson. This is non-transferable and refundable. As the first block is just a half term, the offer is £16.50 weekly or £107.25 for the half term (one lesson at half price).
