About Organisation

Red Balloon NW (RB-NW) London is a warm and welcoming educational community in Harrow that caters for students who travel from across North West London.

The Centre covers core subjects in the National Curriculum as well as the humanities, art, modern foreign languages, PSHE and home cooking. We offer additional qualifications according to students’ interests and aptitude and so, if someone has a particular interest, we may be able to accommodate their choice of qualifications. We have access to Harrow School’s excellent sports facilities.

All our students have either music or art therapy to support their emotional well-being, and we offer a range of extra-curricular activities such as visits to museums and galleries, weekly horse riding lessons, and many of our students complete their Duke of Edinburgh award during their time with us.

We have a strong community of staff and students where we encourage mutual respect, diversity, support and sharing.

Vegetarian food is home-cooked at the Centre, staff and students sitting together at lunchtime. We have a garden where students may grow vegetables, play table-tennis or simply relax when the weather permits.

About the Centre
RB-NW London provides a safe and supportive learning environment for up to 20 young people from NW London and surrounding areas. Our Centre is open Monday to Friday from 9:30 to 15:30 during term time, and students attend full-time or a reduced time-table depending on their needs and abilities.

Students can join RB-NW London from age 11 to 16, with those already with us able to stay to the maximum age of 18 to complete their GCSEs. Though we have sixth-form aged students with us, we are not able to offer A-levels. The highest level of education we offer is Key Stage 4 (GCSEs and equivalent).
