Ahoy!

We are teachers who believe that all children should
experience success in learning. Through publishing projects,
reading support and the power of local community,
we’re on an adventure to build a fairer world.

What we do

We work with children aged 9-12 whose teachers think they would benefit from extra help. Our Young Pirates join us after-school, every week. We run sessions in fantastical spaces in Hackney, Haringey and digitally online.

We believe in the exceptional potential of every child and use the power of positivity and fun to unlock that potential.

Our learning programme is devised and led by qualified teachers. We want children to enjoy reading, so we give them dedicated time to read with trained volunteers. Alongside the chance to voice their ideas in creative writing activities. Then we publish their written work in high-quality books, films, and audio projects, and celebrate their hard work in big events with their teachers and family.
