About our courses

Since 1894 we have been bringing knowledge to life through creative learning opportunities and we continue to do so each term.

Our courses for adults are conveniently reached by Liverpool Street station. We offer a wide range of courses for adults and our Beautiful Grade II* listed building provides an inspired location for learning.

Arts & Culture
We run a wide range of courses embracing art history, photography, music, film, wine tasting and more.

Words & Ideas
Learn about literature, philosophy and politics or try out the written word yourself with creative writing, journalism and scriptwriting.

If you want to learn a language we run courses in Arabic, Chinese Mandarin, French, German, Italian and Spanish. To enhance your learning experience we keep our classes small (no more than 12 students).

Performing Arts
Try our popular singing and acting courses which run every term, along with a range of dance courses such as ballroom & latin, rock & roll/ jive, swing and more.

Body & Exercise
We teach the Hatha and Iyengar disciplines of yoga, plus Pilates and meditation & mindfulness.

Term and course times

We run three course terms a year, spring (January - April), summer (April - August) and autumn (September - December). We have lunchtime, afternoon, evening and weekend courses to accommodate the busiest of schedules.
