The Centre is the last residence of the former Prime Minister Lloyd George; the house is pleasantly situated close to the sea. The students were tutored by the novelist James Friel and the scriptwriter Dan Anthony.

The students collectively wrote a screenplay as well as composing a number of prose pieces.
