The partnership combines the well-equipped specialist studios of WestKing’s King’s Cross Centre with The BRIT School’s specialised teaching methods and unique ethos. There is a varied timetable of classes including: acting, theatre, singing, street dance, art, fashion, music production, and digital design running from 9.30am – 2pm.

WestKing College offers its students a wide range of courses across both performing and production arts. Students hoping to work in the art, music or theatre benefit from well-developed curricula and strong industry links leading to careers in the arts. By partnering with The BRIT School, the college offers the next generation of performers and creatives a chance to train within their exceptional facilities at the King’s Cross Centre.

Daniel Banton, Assistant Director of King’s Cross’ BRIT Kids said: “Collaborating with Westminster Kingsway College for BRIT Kids was a deliberate and exciting choice. The venue resonates with creativity, aligning perfectly with our vision. We’re excited about this partnership as it offers a vibrant space where young people can express their creativity, explore various arts, and thrive. We are looking forward to this collaboration and the chance to create an environment for learning and creativity for young people.”

The BRIT School is renowned for igniting children’s creativity and providing exceptional tuition in all aspects of the Creative Media and Performing Arts. Recent parent and student surveys have shown that The BRIT School classes can boost children’s confidence, enhance interpersonal skills and encourage a passion for the arts – all while allowing students to have fun exploring creativity and performance. 

Tobi Deeson, BRIT Kids Director/National Lead said: “Creativity is being cut from many schools’ curriculums, and from a young age, therefore we want to continue to provide high-quality classes, with The BRIT School ethos at its heart. This is why BRIT Kids are coming to Kings Cross, with its values, Creativity, Community, and Challenge. Westminster Kingsway College has fantastic resources that we are delighted to be able to make available to the community on a Saturday.”

BRIT Kids classes are popular with parents and students alike. Selorm, a former BRIT Kids student said: “I love every single second of it. I was just there meeting loads of cool kids, and at a secondary school, there wasn’t a lot of creative arts, so BRIT Kids were sort of my home to really explode all of this energy that I had in my creative field.”

Parents have also noted how BRIT Kids is adept at “Empowering each child to express their creative potential” and that ‘It takes something special to get teenagers out of bed on a Saturday morning, BRIT Kids is that special’. Most important is the strong sense of creative community made available to students, with one parent saying: “For the first time in a very long time my daughter felt welcomed, supported and valued in an educational setting and was able to pursue her passion.”

A range of bursaries are available for young people aged 13-18 living in Kings Cross and the surrounding boroughs. Applications for bursaries close on 1 December 2023.

CCCG students are also eligible for a 10% discount on all courses.

Budding performers can apply here for courses starting in January 2024.
