What we do
Our after-school programmes, led by teachers, offer one to one and small group attention from trained volunteers, giving children aged 9-12 the confidence to unfurl their sails.
By welcoming them into our joyful spaces, publishing their work in the real world, and celebrating everything they do, we develop their literacy, confidence and perseverance.
Our learning programmes are delivered from fantastical venues in Hackney and Haringey, and via a specially created online platform for Young Pirates who live further afield.
Children on average make 5 to 6 months progress in their reading age each term with us. The children we work with are between one to four years behind, and making just four months of progress each academic year. That means we are making four times the progress they can make at school alone.
