Spring Term Programme
Following on from our first term, we have listened to the community and feedback given to bring a more modular offering this term with the opportunity to book in for more half day workshops. We continue to build wider partnerships introducing this term a Global Citizen theme with an opportunity to join a collaboration with the Global Goals Centre and access to online provider Lyfta.

The Hub workshops and city wide opportunities are to supports parents whose children are not in full time school by supplementing the learning taking place at home and elsewhere. Whilst much learning takes place at the Hub, the responsibility for providing a full-time education remains with the parents.
Our community is growing and we are always open to new young people joining us. We encourage you, if you are booking for the first time, to reach out and say hello. For our regular workshops we are always keen to meet potential new learners to ensure we can welcome them well into our community.
If your young person has SEN then it is essential we have a conversation before you book, we are a small team and need to ensure we can support your young person well.
Email us to say hello.
