Time & Space


We are a community of learners that thrive on self managed learning opportunities. We are on a journey together of exploration of the lives that we have been given and of the purpose of doing this together.


Our Community Ethos values, enjoys and respects one another. We maintain a caring atmosphere where mealtimes are shared together and governance is modelled democratically. We learn outdoors wherever possible and base some of our time in the local community.
