Griffin Park Learning Zone Header

Established in 2004, Griffin Park Learning Zone is a vibrant hub of learning activity.

Building self-confidence and motivation is one of the Learning Zone’s core objectives – empowering pupils to be creative, work at their own pace and maximise the benefits of the centre. Plus, all our projects complement what pupils are learning in school or college.

More specifically, Griffin Park Learning Zone supports children and young people who need the most help – helping them gain vital skills for the working world.

Whether that be our intervention projects for children struggling in school, our mentoring programme for young people at risk of exclusion or our after-school clubs for young people with special needs.

Each year, Griffin Park Learning Zone engages with more than 3,000 children and young people in the local area.
