Astronomy School

Our astronomy courses offer something for everyone… from complete newbies to enthusiastic observers.

COVID-19 UPDATE: Because of the Rule of Six, we’re not currently able to run face-to-face classes. We are, however, taking provisional bookings for courses starting in January 2021. We’ll be offering a mix of face-to-face and real-time, online classes delivered via Zoom.

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 have access), where you can access anything you’ve missed. Courses are aimed at age 16 upwards. Click on the links below to find out more.
