We facilitate GCSE, iGCSE, AS and A Level, BTEC, and Functional Skills via CAIE, AQA, Edexcel, OCR, WJEC (Eduqas) awarding bodies.

Arts and Culture

Since 2010 we have created high-quality productions, which have toured internationally. We’ve performed on the biggest UK stages. Renowned for original writing, we often receive commissions for new works. Our award-winning youth theatre has been invited to perform with stars of stage, screen and even royalty. 


Heritage is what you take from the past and give to the future. We’re passionate about connecting people with their national, local and personal heritage. From mining history to modern relevance, we have produced exhibitions and touring events on a range of heritage topics, inspiring and engaging thousands of people.


We’re passionate about engaging local communities in arts and cultural initiatives and increasing access to community events. We’ve built a reputation for being a positive enabler and we work tirelessly to address systematic inequality via our community driven learning, volunteering and employment initiatives.

Learning and Empowerment

Our broad programme of engagement initiatives for those who are NEET, or suffer from a mental or health disability or crisis. We receive referrals from learning providers, local education authorities and parents. We offer support for children and young people from Primary to Further Education and pre-employment.
