Bringing together home-schooled children to learn together

Learning Lounge

Our Learning Lounge is an informal drop-in style opportunity for parents to access additional educational support for their school-aged children aged 8 and above.  It is designed to be a supportive and safe space for learners to enjoy learning.  It is a low cost, professional service run by qualified and experienced teaching staff.

A Family Friendly Place

The Learning Lounge is a relaxed, social environment with tutors on-hand to answer questions, give educational ideas and provide links to free resources. We would like families to feel a sense of ownership and belonging, and to develop a network of like-minded friends.

Sessions are run weekly at the Megacentre every Monday between 1pm and 6pm.  You can choose to book-in or simply arrive on the day.

What do we provide?

We provide computers and Internet access, games, learning aids and worksheets, and free refreshments and the occasional treat!  Students need to be able to learn independently (in case tutors are attending to other students).

Students are supervised by qualified tutors who are DBS Checked, and may book in to guarantee a space, or just turn up on the day. We open on Mondays 1pm-6pm and the charge is £5 per hour per student. Family members can stay or leave students in our capable hands.
