The London Screen Academy (LSA) is a state-funded sixth form academy for 16-19 year old London students. It has been created to teach a vocational curriculum comprising behind the camera skills and the background knowledge needed to join the screen industries which include film and television.
LSA is in Islington and accepts applications from students across London. The creative industries are one of the fastest growing sectors in London’s economy and across the whole of the UK. Within the creative industries, the film and television industries in particular face ongoing skills shortages.
LSA’s goal is for students to graduate prepared or ‘set ready’, progressing to either a career in the screen industries, to higher education or taking the skills they’ve learned to succeed in other professions.
