Our Facilities

At Screen and Film School, we pride ourselves on using the same equipment, software and facilities that industry professionals use every day.

In order to achieve a sustainable and rewarding career in the film or creative technology industry – and be the absolute best you can be – we know you’ve got to have the best equipment and facilities around you. That’s why each and every one of our campuses boast industry-standard facilities that rival other education centres across the country.

Aspiring filmmakers can take advantage of our state-of-the art sets, complete with lighting rigs and flats. The sets are flexible spaces that can be dressed and adapted to the requirements of each shoot, working alongside your Art Department to create your perfect scene.

We pride ourselves on being one of the very few education providers to teach you on both digital and film cameras. We have a large range of film and digital equipment, including dollies, jibs, tracks and sliders, and our editing software includes Adobe and Avid. Screen and Film School has fantastic links with professional companies such as Panavision, Panalux and Arri, who support us in the loan and donation of high-end kit.

Students in our Creative Technology faculty can experiment with all the latest technology in our dedicated labs and workspaces. Using our high-specification gaming PCs, you’ll work with games engines like Unity and Unreal 5 and experiment in programmes like Autodesk Maya, ZBrush and Visual Studio.

Throughout your course at Screen and Film School, you’ll learn in our spacious teaching rooms and cutting-edge Mac Labs. Our industry lecturers are also experts in every single element of industry tech (from software to equipment) and will always be on hand to help you upskill, improve and ultimately achieve your dream career.

We offer state-of-the-art, purpose-built film studios with sound proofed walls, high ceilings and industry-standard rigging. 

At the heart of the film schools are fully working 18 x 12ft sets with lighting rigs and flats. The sets are flexible spaces that can be dressed and adapted to the requirements of each shoot, working alongside your Art Department to create your perfect scene.

Each studio space is adaptable and multi-functional, meaning you can hold your pre-production meetings, film screenings and writer’s room all from one space.

The technician’s stores are all within the set spaces, so rest assured you have the support of the technician team when you need it.


During your time here, you’ll feel right at home working with high-end equipment, whether that’s shooting on an Arri Alexa Mini, lighting your scene with Arri LED kits or setting up your shot with DJI Ronin’s, Screen and Film School has a huge range of industry-standard equipment at your fingertips to use.
