Free Learning

Free Learning is education for education’s sake. It is learning that extends beyond and is free from a syllabus and free from examination, and that challenges pupils to think for themselves.

Free Learning is multifaceted education that goes beyond the syllabus. It enriches and nurtures intellectual curiosity.
