We inspire and nurture young students to become all-round magical performers, dedicated achievers in a wide range of different fields, and upstanding people in their communities, through magic, art performance and a deep-rooted ethos of leadership.
At the College of Magic, students have the opportunity to learn the many different genres of magic, as well as allied arts such as juggling, mime, clowning and drama; puppetry and ventriloquism, and theatre production including sound, lighting and digital filmmaking.
There are 2 junior entry-level courses:
Course 1: For children 10 to 13 years old (15 weeks, starting in February and July each year)
Magic and Showmanship: For high school learners 14 to 17 years old (30 weeks – starting in February each year)
Following these introductory courses, students can progress through a series of courses to further develop their skills in the specific genre(s) they wish to focus on.
The formal training sessions are one hour in length and take place on an extra-mural basis, once a week during school terms. Additionally, a wide range of ‘extra courses’ on offer further enhance our students’ development. These courses are optional, free of charge to registered students, and scheduled at convenient times. Students who fulfil the attendance, participation and performance requirements of a particular course are able to progress to the next level.
We also offer tailormade courses for adults.
Our voluntary teaching staff is fully committed to helping develop and nurture our students’ abilities. Small classes ensure an individualised and creative atmosphere in which learners can develop holistically. Our ‘8 Star Qualities’ are at the core of our training – namely: Honesty, Respect, Responsibility, Initiative, Excellence, Empathy, Humility and Wonder. We encourage these qualities while helping our students to become independent, self-confident and well-rounded individuals.
