Our training studio
At our training studio we use Apple computers, in addition to video, still image, and audio production equipment. We use the school's computers at our after schools clubs held at schools, but your child can bring their own laptop too.

Our training studio in Bromley Common is a safe, secure and hygienic environment, professionally equipped and fit for purpose. We are wheelchair accessible and there is an adjacent toilet. We are located in Barham Close, Bromley BR2 8LU off the A21 Hastings Rd.

Each student has an Apple MacMini workstation with 22" screen and headphones. We have small easy-to-move mouse pointers, suitable for younger learners, and trackpads for students who require them.

Software

To make it as easy as possible for our learners to continue with their learning at home, we try to use as much free software as possible. Although our own computers are Apple Macs, all our activities can be undertaken on PCs too.
