We are an independent adult education centre providing a diverse programme of courses from academic to recreational classes.
Students attending Settlement run courses must also be a member of the Settlement. Find out more about the benefits of membership.
Despite our full programme of classes we do have rooms available for occasional or regular hire.


Come along and meet like-minded people on one of our courses. Whatever your interest we probably have something to tempt you. A wide range of clubs and societies also meet here – The Settlement Players, the Camera Club and groups ranging from art to embroidery to wine appreciation – all enjoy catching up at 229 Nevells Road.


Our supportive and friendly approach provides the ideal learning environment for our students across a range of exciting subjects which include modern languages and practical craft courses such as upholstery, patchwork & quilting and sugarcraft. Discover different authors and their works, explore other cultures and learn more about artists and their lives and times.


Painting, writing, flower arranging and more. Designed to be thought-provoking and stimulating, our courses will challenge your creativity and reveal those hidden skills……
