Cllr Sue Murphy, Mayor of St Helens, officially opened the centre. She said: “I was thrilled to open Lyme and Wood Learning Hub. It was wonderful meeting the young people and seeing their enthusiasm for learning new skills that will assist them in their future working life. The care and support shown by the staff is outstanding”.

Julliet Doherty, Head of Post-16 Learning at Wargrave House said: “We are delighted that we have this additional space to serve as an offsite learning and development base, further supporting our students with their functional, employability and community skills.

“The students were involved in naming the building through a competition and it was unanimously agreed that Lyme and Wood Learning Hub captures the essence of the hub and its purpose.

“The post 16 provision community model is ‘we achieve more together than we could alone’ and the hub is already a perfect example of what can be achieved together”.

What will the new Learning Hub offer?

The Lyme and Wood Learning Hub will provide positive partnership working, enabling Wargrave House students to experiment and prioritise, accepting each other’s challenges and supporting initiatives to enhance the community.
