Two after-school film clubs capture the imagination of pupils at Edlington Victoria Primary, Doncaster and Hornsey School for Girls, London.

The film club at Edlington Victoria Primary was inspired by a suggestion from school council member George. For headteacher Janice Middleton it's a chance to realise George's idea and to stimulate her pupils' imaginations.

At Hornsey School for Girls, the film club is run by 6th former Cynthia. She's responsible for everything from promoting the club through assemblies and posters around the school to choosing themes and guiding discussions on the films.

Her enthusiasm and commitment is key to the success of the club and a great opportunity for a 6th former, according to head of media studies Chris Mitchell.
