Courses for Adults



At Hannah More we run lots of courses and activities for parents. These range from Maths and English classes to first aid, sewing, healthy eating and sport. Classes are usually free and, where possible, we run a crèche alongside. Our classes are supported by the 'Friends of Hannah More'. We ran trips in the summer and are now busy planning courses for the year ahead.

At-Bristol Family Project

We have been working with At-bristol science centre, supporting families to get free membership for a whole year!  The next opportunity is for parents with a child in Reception and will be on Wednesday 8th and Wednesday 15th November. More information here. Reserve a place by signing up and paying a £5 deposit to Ruth - or at the school office.  

Keeping children safe online

We ran a special workshop with the NSPCC earlier this year which was popular. The next session is planend for Wednesday 6 December 9.00-10.00.

Sport and fitness for mums 

As part of our Fit School initiative, we run different ladies' fitness activities every Friday morning after assembly (9.30-10.45). Last year we tried netball, basketball, circuits and yoga. We start again on 22nd September with netball. All women are very welcome and we can organise a creche if needed. Fun is guaranteed!

Cycling - following on from our cycling courses in 2015, we have 2 adult school bikes which can be loaned. Both have a waiting list at the moment - please ask the office for more details. We also have regular bike repair sessions and bike swap breakfasts! 

Sewing - our sewing courses have been really popular! Last year's course focused on making costumes for our Reception performance. The next course enrols on Thursday 21st September and starts the following week. Cost £10 - to cover materials for the whole course.

Open mornings - We regularly invite all interested parents to experience teaching and learning at Hannah More. This year's dates are 10 October, 25 January and 14 June. Booking forms are sent home the week before.

Homework Clubs - we run homework clubs every Thursday after school. Key Stage 1 children need an adult with them. Parents are also very welcome at Key Stage 2 homework club. Come along for some advice - or to help us out! There is a creche available for pre-school children.

The Hub - our lovely library and resource base is open after school on Mondays, for parents and children to read together or access BUG CLUB. Come along to find out more!
