New information available The Saturday Academy and The Learning Tree Team wish Caroline Henham every success as the newly appointed Head at East Wichel Community School.  Caroline’s absolute belief in the partnership of family and school at Nythe School, Swindon has meant that many many children have reached their full potential and gained a lifelong enthusiasm for learning. We wish her the very best of luck in her new role and look forward to working with her, the new team and all the families at East Wichel in helping them to become a learning community. 

Nythe Saturday Academy is generating good return visits from families.

The Learning Tree is a Family Learning project. Based in Wiltshire, UK the Learning Tree Family Learning team brings exciting hands on activities ranging from arts and crafts to science and technology to Primary Schools and local communities.  We introduce children and their families to the idea of Lifelong Learning, learning to learn and developing the primary school as a learning community for families to use and enjoy.

The best way to see the sort of events we run is to browse through the list of previous activities, but don't just take our word for it.  This is what others have said.
