London Screen Academy

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.

“As Founders we believe that everyone who has a passion for film-making should have the opportunity for a career behind the camera in one of the many jobs in the screen industries. We want to make the seemingly inaccessible film and television worlds accessible. We believe that our workforce should better reflect the diversity and cultural richness of the city in which we live.”

Tim Bevan, Co-Chairman of Working Title Films

“LSA will create a level playing field of opportunities for young people across London to learn about film and television production and will ensure that future workforces in these industries represent the face of London. We will teach LSA students as much as we can, about as much as we can, in the 2 years they have at LSA.”

Eric Fellner, Co-Chairman of Working Title Films
