We offer affordable, high quality sessions open to all home educated children on a flexible, pay per session basis. Our current programme of sessions focuses on a range of topics changing with the seasons. These are designed for children aged between 6 and 13 years old, in line with the key stage 2 / 3 curriculum. Summaries of upcoming sessions are below.



Price is £8 per participating child. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

If necessary, siblings out of the session age range are permitted but there is a fee of £2.50 for each additional child.
