School workshops take place in local schools, and form a major part of the HYF Programme.  We offer over 2,000 places to young people from Reception age upwards. A diverse range of workshops gives children a flavour of different activities that they might not have attempted or experienced before. The programme is designed to stimulate their imagination, build confidence and to inspire them to try out new experiences. The workshops are selected and booked by schools and details will be provided to parents.
