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.

WE THE CURIOUS (At-Bristol) Family Project

We have been working with 'We the Curious' science centre, supporting families to get free membership for a whole year! Our latest family trip was November and we hope to run another visit in early 2018. In the meantime there is a free 'Hello Lawrence Hill!' weekend on 25 and 26 November, featuring some Hannah More volunteers!

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. Term 1 was netball and term 2 is badminton. All women are very welcome and we have now set up a creche to support mums with pre-schoolers. Fun is guaranteed!
