Astronomy School

Our Astronomy School offers something for everyone… from complete newbies to enthusiastic observers.

COVID UPDATE: Because of the pandemic, we’re not currently taking bookings for face-to-face classes. But the good news is… if we get enough people signing up, we can run some live, online courses delivered via Zoom. We’re hoping to get back into classrooms sometime in 2021.

Our evening and weekend courses have been designed for all, no matter what your level of knowledge or ability; all you need is enthusiasm and a passion for astronomy!

Each class has lots of supporting material to download, plus if you miss a lesson and need to catch up, each course has its own Online Course Page (password-protected so only enrolled students can sign in), where you can access anything you’ve missed. Courses are aimed at age 16 upwards. Click on the links below to find out more.
