Leaders and thinkers

"Leaders and thinkers" is an innovative activity for children in school years 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8. Inspired by our successful Bits and Bytes program, this weekly out of school activity engages, develops, and broadens the aspirations of your son or daughter. The focus is upon the creation of the essential skills that grow leaders and thinkers. Our goal is to help children become both. Skills developed include problem-solving, creativity, resilience, teamwork, leadership, critical evaluation, and respect.

Our extensive range of activities are all designed to give your child further opportunities to develop the above skills. Activities will include tackling theoretical problems, solving practical problems, developing programming skills, tackling robotic challenges, solving puzzles, creative challenges (such as film-making), age-appropriate social debates, and research and presentation based activities. We guarantee that the events will be so engaging that you as parents may wish to join too!

Free pilot session

We are staging a free one-off taster session on Monday 23rd March, starting 4:30pm. If you would like your son or daughter to attend this single event then please click here. The further information below is for parents who would like their sone or daughter to attend this exciting activity on a weekly basis.

The when and where

Your son or daughter will be welcomed by our team, every Wednesday afternoon, between 4:30 and 6:30pm. The activities are staged in the Skoulding Suite within March Town Hall. Those joining are expected to attend on a weekly basis. This is an essential requirement as some of the activities will span multiple weeks, whilst all activities are team-based.

Parental investment

We believe this is an investment in your child's future. This weekly investment is just £7.50, and covers all costs. Please understand this amount, which is slightly more than many of 20Twenty Productions' weekly activities, is based upon the costs of providing the necessary staff and resources.

Membership requirements

We believe that children should socialise and work alongside a broader mix of ages to aid their own social development. As such children attending primary or secondary school in years 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 are invited to join.

Group size

Membership is limited to 40 children at any given time. From this children will be organised in to teams of four to participate in our structured, competitive activities. We do expect the demand to grow, and for the group to ultimately reach capacity.

Start date

The group will begin once we have a waiting list of 20 children. We do not anticipate this to take long. We have taken this decision as we believe 20 is the critical number at which the activities become sufficiently competitive for the group members to fully benefit.

Reserve a place now

Please complete the information below. Places will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis. We will contact you as soon as we have the minimum number of children needed to start the activity.
