Creative writing workshops
Yellowbird Educationoffers fun and engaging workshops for children to develop skills in Creative Writing, Handwriting, Comprehension, and Discursive Writing. We have extensive knowledge of the British school system and offer advice, practice and support to children preparing for 7+, 8+ and 11+ independent school entrance exams. We also offer a trusted school search and placement service through our sister company, Janie Richardson School Search.
Yellowbird Education aims to be an inspiring coach and partner in your school journey. Our workshops, exam support and interview practice are all designed to equip, inspire and bring out the best in your child.
These hugely popular workshops are always very much in demand.We recommend you book early.They are suitable for writers of all abilities and they are always lively, engaging sessions.Creative writing is an important part of entrance exams, so this class helps develop the skills needed for 7+, 8+, 11+ exams; however, the focus is on inspiring creative minds rather than timed intensive exam preparation.
Equally popular with boys and girls, the sessions enable children to meet others from a wide range of schools and gain confidence in a group environment; often returning again and again as each workshop is different with new and exciting themes.Our aim is to unlock the box of each child’s creativity and help them find the confidence to think differently, so that writing becomes a life skill rather than just a means of passing exams.
