After School Clubs

What are the After School Clubs?

After School ClubsEach pupil joins one extracurricular club as part of their yearly enrolment at the Academy. Our clubs are designed to broaden your child's interests and encourage them to develop a sense of independent learning.

They do not involve exams or official qualifications.

Pupils can currently choose from Art, Film Production, Debating, Photography and Young Entrepreneurs. 

Pupils may sign up for more than one club. These come at an extra cost.


Film Production Club

Film Production ClubFilm Club is led by Ross, who has extensive experience in the film industry and is highly skilled in story telling through the mediums of Video, Film and Photography. He's passionate about the potential of new technology such as AR and VR. If you join Film Club, you'll be learning about genres of film, coming up with story lines, scripts and character development, thinking about how to create and frame scenes, and experimenting with AR and VR. Classes last for 1 hour each week and will build towards the creation of a short original film.

Art Club

MVA's weekly Art Club explores a variety of themes, genres and styles in Art and Design, alongside advice on materials and techniques. Each programme lasts for one term and the topics are carefully chosen to inspire students to make their own sketches and finished pieces in a relaxed, informal atmosphere, and to encourage their own research.

Class participation through discussion and sharing of work is actively encouraged. Topics covered to date have included: The Portrait, Birds in Art, Science Fiction Art, Surrealism, Manga and Anime and The Circus – with some fantastic results!

Whether a student is a determined enthusiast eager to build a portfolio, or someone who just wants to learn a bit more about Art and Design and have a go at making their own, Art Club provides all who take part with a calm, creative yet stimulating hour each week.
