My 14 year old nephew had several lessons at School of Skate as a gift from me and his Uncle. He went to Victoria Park in East London and was taught by the incredible Soren! My nephew would come away feeling happy, confident and proud in his new skills!! I could also see the progress and passion for skating emerge after lessons with Soren. Soren has a natural ability with a range of ages and has a calm and patient demeanor. My nephew would come home and sing Soren's praises and said "he was a pretty cool guy and a great teacher!" Which from a teenager is high praise indeed!!Thanks again to Soren and the team. You made summer fun!
I had a one-on-one class with Soren P from School of Skate this week. It was a lot of fun and he gave me some great tips - even managed to drop into a decent ramp unassisted by the end (something I had never done before). Would highly recommend! Cheers Soren 🙂
I had my first skate lesson today and it was super!!! Rick was attentive, experienced and helped me progress very quickly. I am learning to surf skate so it was great to find somebody able to give me exercise specifically for this. Thanks!
This is an incredible class, my kid has improved so much in confidence and ability over just a few classes. the teacher is amazing, holding together a mixed ability class with a real ability to understand each student’s needs. Highly recommend.
Nilo ran a party for my son and his friends (12 x 5-6 year olds!) and it was fantastic! Most were quite nervous at the beginning, having not skateboarded before, however by the end of it their confidence and skills had really grown and they were all beaming with smiles.The parents have been passing on many thanks for an awesome party too.Highly recommended. Thank you School Of Skate!
Fantastic skateboarding lesson, great experience and lots of fun! Jonty managed to give lots of attention to each one of the kids. He made the lesson fun and engaging but also tailored the practice to help each one of them to improve their skills. They all progressed really fast and gained a lot of confidence.
I took my 7 year old son for a 1 hour private lesson with his friend at School of Skate. He really enjoyed himself and progressed far faster in that hour than he ever had done before. We now have a set of things to work on to improve, and will definitely be booking another lesson in future.
My son does the beginner skateboard lessons at Charlton park and he's loving it. Nilo (the teacher) is brilliant, really knowledgeable, patient, enthusiastic, and excellent with the kids. Would highly recommend. So glad we found School of Skate
Rick was a great tutor for our 10 year old boy who is allergic to exercise. At the end of the 1 hour lesson he did not want to attend in the least, he announced "BTW I'm so coming back next week"! He has a mountain to climb in terms of learning to skate board but is in the right hands for this task. The class was great as instead of all the participants being given the same instructions, each child was taught what they needed to learn for their individual pace, skill level & past experience. We were very impressed with the calm, considerate & expert attention to each child's unique needs
A consent form will need to be completed by participants

What about bad weather during my skateboarding party?
Rain forecast during the party
Unfortunately if there’s a high likelihood of rain during the lesson we will have to postpone. We’ll try and let you know as soon as we can by using our well developed weather radar reading skills, but usually at least two hours beforehand.
Rain before the party
If the skatepark is wet we can run a wet weather programme. We have a wet weather programme which includes fun activities that are safe to undertake during on a wet surface.
What if I want more than 10 to come my party?
The standard Skateboarding Party Package includes 10 students. We can cater for more with an additional coach for extra charge of £25 per hour, plus £15 per extra student.
For example, for 15 students:
First 10 students
5 more students
£15 x 5 = £75
