'Alithia' is Greek for Truth

The spelling alethiea is used in philosophy to describe truth as the way things are opened up, revealed, made intelligible for human beings. Alithia Learning is a place where children are encouraged to develop ideas, question and discover, integrating a deep understanding of the world. It is a platform for reimagining learning. A place to innovate.

Alithia also refers to one’s inner-truth and sincerity. We see 'Alithia Learning' to mean 'True Learning', in a holistic sense: social, emotional, creative and academic. A place to explore concepts in a way that is appealing to the individual and develop a strong sense of authentic-self, helping children to navigate their way through a full-filling, connected life.

The Learning Space

Launching 2019

The Alithia Learning Space will be the first Young Innovators Hub offering various workshops, hands-on activities and day-courses for collaborative innovation (where children are encouraged to instigate projects, develop ideas together and put them into action).


A growing number of families are finding that a school environment does not work for them and are looking for something new or needing to home educate. Alithia Learning will provide a place for these children to come together, with regular set open-hours, where they can access collaborative projects, discover, create and problem-solve with other children of varying ages and backgrounds.


A place where children can continuously work on a large-scale projects.  A place where children have the freedom to experiment and follow their curiosities with access to shared facilities. A place where children are supported to reach their full potential regardless of their background or approach to life. Where children can connect with and be supported by skilled community mentors to develop their unique learning approach.


A second home, a second family.
