As autumn arrives it’s time to head back to school, collect your timetable and enroll for lessons with a Late Shift twist!

The Art curriculum includes life-drawing, painting and tutorials with illustrators Marion Deuchars, Shirley Hughes and Clara Vulliamy. You can also take a Drama class, brush up on your French, have a History lesson or get creative in a Textiles workshop. Plus bring along your smart phone or ipad to take part in the IT class. Pick up a Late Shift tour sketchbook and be inspired by Late Shift Extra’s head boy, artist Stuart Pearson Wright.

Hang out in the Tuck Shop for a drink with fellow students, or skip class and head for a gig with The Tiger’s Bride.
