The Brixton Learning Collaborative (BLC) is a group of 15 schools and Children’s Centres in and around Brixton, south London, working together to improve outcomes for pupils, families and the local community through partnership working.

The holistic approach of the BLC helps us to develop and celebrate our local community, striving to improve the lives of everyone in our local area.

BLC Partners

Our work would not be possible without the support and help of a great many organisations and funders. We are extremely grateful to all of our current partners. If your organisation is interested in collaborating with our partnership of schools, email Jenny Smith BLC partnership manager blc@christchurchschool.cc to discuss opportunities.

Our long-term partnership with the Brixton Learning Collaborative has been invaluable to National Theatre Learning. As a national organisation it has given us the opportunity to work very closely with our most local schools to develop creative learning projects and enrichment opportunities which we can then roll out to schools across the UK.  Jackie Tait, The National Theatre.
