The greenhouse at Warner Bros. Studio Tour

Discover Filmmaking magic – 2023 schools’ tickets now available

Spend a spellbinding day outside of the classroom by stepping into the iconic Great Hall set at Warner Bros. Studio Tour London.

Board the original Hogwarts Express at Platform 9 ¾, take in the grandeur of Gringotts Wizarding Bank, all before wandering down Diagon Alley.

Brand new for 2022, just like a Hogwarts student you can step into Professor Sprout’s greenhouse and pull out a potted Mandrake.

Behind the scenes, secrets of the most successful film series of all time will be revealed at the working Studios where all eight Harry Potter films were produced with learning opportunities around every corner.

As part of your school visit, take a deeper look at the art of filmmaking with cross-curricular lessons delivered by a team of qualified teachers in purpose-built classrooms.

The learning offering includes a variety of lessons spanning Key Stages 2-5 and covers a range of curriculum areas including STEM, art and design, English, business studies and film and media.

The learning programme was created to inspire the next generation of filmmakers, providing the link between the classroom and how it is applied to the filmmaking process and real-life jobs.

During each lesson, students will have the unique opportunity to see original props and costumes from the Harry Potter films up-close.

A school taking part in Warner Bros. Studio tour

New for this academic year, film and media students can explore the fascinating topics of either Storyboarding or Mise-en-Scène as part of their visit.

Other lessons available include movie maths, costume distressing, screenplay stories and movie graphics with each lesson including pre- and post-visit resources to assist with lesson plans before and after your visit.

All 45-minute lessons are free to visiting schools and the studio tour is a Learning Outside the Classroom (LOtC) Quality Badge holder.

An LOtC Quality Badge is a national accreditation that recognises both learning and safety for all types of learning outside the classroom providers.

It is endorsed by the Department for Education.

Lessons are subject to availability, so book early to avoid disappointment.

For 2023, schools tickets remain at a discounted rate on selected dates. Tickets cost £20 for a primary school student and £23 for a secondary school or college student with free teacher tickets.
