Just tried to get a NUS card for DD, her school is listed so that was ok, but unfortunately you need to be 14. Useful to know though.
I think you are right, Definite gap in the market there. What really annoys me was that I have to pay VAT on her school tracky bottoms, when they are obviously school wear (have the school crest on them) because they are deemed to be a woman's size. We don't pay vat on the school sweatshirts regardless of size.
Have been looking for photography courses myself for DD. Similar position, got her dad's DSLR when he upgraded. I think the best thing is to go out taking photos and see what works and what doesn't. Encourage her to see things from a different angle, something younger children seem to do anyway.
Don't know where you are but PGL do children's photograpghy courses (half day photograpghy half day other activities) also found this http://lillianspibeyphotography.com/cou ... hy-course/
DD has set up a weebly website with some of her photos on. Have sent you a PM
