What we do for the kids

Learning experiences
We provide children with learning experiences of life which support the delivery of the National Curriculum in schools.

The real world
Our children visit work places and see the many different jobs and careers available of which they might never have been aware.

Encouraging aspiration
We involve many children who are living in challenging circumstances, some from families where there's been generations of unemployment.
