Welcome to Action Learning Centres!

Here you will find everything you need to know about our project, the work we do and what we aim for all of our learners to achieve!

Action Learning is a farm based learning centre for Primary, Secondary and Special Educational Needs students. We also offer training for adults who wish to learn or brush up on previously learnt skills.

We provide an accredited alternative learning provision which is based in 10 acres of farmland in Downham, Essex.







The central thrust of this initiative is to help individuals play a more positive role in society.  

Through our work we aim to help young people make sustainable development a reality, by delivering a range of both practical and 'academic' learning and citzenship experiences, both in and out of the classroom. We believe that our combined concept helps to change lives, by turning our students' aspirations into reality!
