UK update

Magic Bus' UK pilot programme has now been running for ten months and has developed and grown in that time.


Our Explorers programme for primary school children is now reaching 300 children in two primary schools in the London Borough of Lambeth and in January 2016 will be expanding to a further three primary schools. The programme impacts on a range of development outcomes including social-emotional skills, peer relationships, positive choices, conflict management, reduction in bullying and resilience.


Our teenage girls programme has adapted from a community based programme to a schools based one. The Magic Bus secondary schools programme will create a safe environment where girls learn and develop social-emotional skills to help improve their behaviour and performance at school whilst boosting their wellbeing and mental and physical health. We work with mixed groups of pupils including young people who are at risk of exclusion or under-achieving due to emotional or behavioural problems. Using qualified youth workers and sports coaches the programme offers a highly effective alternative ‘informal education’ curriculum.
