Courses for Hannah More Parents



At Hannah More we run lots of courses and activities for parents.  Activities are supported by our 'Friends of Hannah More' group and we work with organisations like the WEA and the Learning Communities Team to make sure classes are free and have crèche alongside. In March we will also be recuiting people to join our Cultural Competence training course. More information soon!
