What we offer
Giant projection screens, powerful surround sound, evocative lighting and interactive elements all combine to create an immersive learning environment like no other.
What makes us a great choice?
Our Life Skills Tours help bring PSHE to life in a way that enhances and builds upon classroom learning. We cover a range of topics tackled in a number of highly immersive digital scenarios, including alcohol, smoking, drugs, gangs and knives, robbery, urban safety, internet safety, fire safety, bullying, transport safety, anti-social behaviour, diet and nutrition, waste, recycling and climate change. We also provide lesson plans which support learning back in the classroom.
Group Sizes Catered For
We can accommodate up to 100 students, and have onsite parking for coaches. We also have direct access to the M25 at Junction 8 (Reigate).
Materials, Resources & Information Provided
We also provide teaching resources to facilitate learning back in the classroom, with lesson plans tailored around each of the scenarios encountered on the tour. These can be found on our website here:

PSHE Co-ordinator, Trinity School (Year 8), Croydon
Excellent all round education, covering key issues of personal safety, health and risk. A fantastic opportunity to look at these issues outside the school environment with experienced staff. Thank you!
Head Teacher McKinley Middle School Globe Academy (Year 8) Southwark
The Sutton Life Centre delivers what PSHE in the classroom never could because students are immersed in a 'virtual world'. They are highly engaged and have a deep learning experience.
Teacher Meadow Vale Primary School (Year 6) Bracknell Berkshire
The tour was very positive - it approached the subjects giving them the right amount of information appropriate to their age.
Teacher Claremont Fan Court School (Year 6) Esher Surrey
The Life Centre made the children think about a whole range of issues in a new and challenging way that would be impossible in the classroom.
