Group skateboarding lessons

The School of Skate operates skateboarding schools across London and Bournemouth. We started group skateboarding lessons in 2017 when the new skatepark opened in Charlton Park, in London SE7.

We have since expanded, starting group lessons at Folkestone Gardens skatepark, Deptford in 2020, and starting Victoria Park skatepark, Peckham Rye Park. and  Whitegrounds, London Bridge in 2021. We provide both beginner and progressing skateboarding lessons. We teach boys, girls, and adults from 5 years old upwards with a wide range of abilities. We can provide skateboards & all safety equipment, or you can bring your own. We provide insured & DBS enhanced checked skateboard instructors.

Private skateboarding lessons

Whilst based in South London we provide private skateboarding lessons at skateparks across most of London. We have run birthday party lessons, Scout group lessons, and local Council events. We can arrange to bring portable ramps & rails to your venue. Please contact us if you have any questions about our services.

Beginner skateboarding lessons

Not everyone wants to do a laser flip down 16 stairs. At the School of Skate we recognise that the vast majority of us are beginners, who have more modest goals, so we focus on helping you stand up on your board, ride along, and falling (with style). The beginner classes take you to the point of being able to do The Drop In.

When you’ve learnt to drop in you can do your Beginner Grading, get the T-Shirt, and join the Progressing Group.

Learn more about our beginner skateboarding programme.

Progressing skateboarding lessons

We provide progressing group and private lessons. After you’ve learnt the basics we can take you forward to follow either a street or transition pathway. With street, you can learn to ollie, and grind (we have specialised equipment made just for this), and onto more advanced skills like the kickflip. With transition you learn to skate ramps and to carve bowls, and can learn lip tricks and airs.

If you’ve got any questions about progressing your skateboarding beyond the basics you can drop us a message.

Becoming a skateboarding instructor

We’ve had a few people ask about what you need to do...

We used a @blindskate soft top at this 3 year old's lesson in Charlton yesterday. With kids this young we focus on helping the parent learn how to assist their child, i.e. how to shift their child's weight as they ride different obstacles etc..

Shout out to @hop_king. You know who you are 👊

I'm sporting a baby blue hop tee which l picked up today..

Hop Kingdom is open from 12 on weekends and is right next to Whitegrounds where we're running group classes through the winter so you can pop in afterwards. There's some dinky quarterpipes which are ideal to learn to drop in on. It is £5 to skate which includes a drink. They also have a shop selling hardware and merch..

First lesson of 2022 with Beatrix at Charlton. It's a bit chilly out there today folks ❄️❄️❄️

Our group lessons at outdoor parks will restart after Feb half term. In the meantime I am running groups at Whitegrounds on Saturday morning and privates at most school sites.
