Rise Up Academy Summer School

The Rise Up Academy Summer School is returning to the Global Academy in Hayes from 25-28 July in 2023! Book your place now!

Join us for a fun packed day (or two) at the Rise Up Academy Summer School

The Rise Up Academy Summer School gives young people from school years 7-13 the chance to get a hands-on, interactive experience of what it’s really like to work in media technology.

During this event, participants get the chance to undertake a variety of activities led by industry experts, including building a TV studio and filming a show, exploring an outside broadcast truck, creating graphics and editing, experimenting with virtual production and much more.

The first ever Rise Up Academy Summer School was held at the Global Academy in August 2022. Get inspired to sign up for 2023 checking out the pictures from the week.
