Stratton Primary School in Bude, Cornwall, and Warrington Youth Club in Warrington, Cheshire, have picked up the Into Film Club of the Year prizes at the 2016 Into Film Awards.

Chris Nichols, club leader at Stratton Primary School, told us the club "allows pupils to meet children from other year groups and gives them something in common to talk about." Bude is in a very rural, isolated setting, so the club has been essential in helping students' form friendships. 

Warrington Youth Club's leader gave us a little background on what makes their club so special.

Our club is part of a wider scheme, 'Buddy Up', a befriending project which provides support within social groups for young people who have a disability, and are at potential risk of becoming socially isolated. Our Film Clubs are held twice a month, with new members joining all the time.

Clubs are free for state funded school and non-school settings, such as youth clubs, cinemas and libraries. They are easy to set up and provide a flexible model that can be tailored to the social and academic needs of a pupil, and/or school or youth setting.
