The Library was refurbished by DSD Construction to bring it up to the same amazing standard as the rest of our building. The Library is just beyond the Reception Area and is a beautiful space suitable for 1:1 mentoring if this informal setting would be more comfortable than a regular mentoring room such as our Eden or FMGS room.
This space would also be perfect for small groups of young people wanting to have a reading session and browse our new books that we have on offer. It is a lovely quiet, calming space.

Blue Rec Area
Our ‘blue rec’ area as we like to call it is a large, open space in our main atrium, with a privacy curtain that can be pulled around. Natural light is plentiful thanks to the large walls of windows, and overhead lighting. It is located on our ground floor in the main atrium, with nearby toilet facilities.
The floor is of a slightly softer material than the rest of our rec area, which makes it ideal for sports or training, such as first aid, where there may be a need to spend time on the floor.
Tables and chairs can be set out for conferences, training, or large meetings, but there is also plenty of space meaning that sports equipment (badminton nets, indoor football or parachutes etc) can be set out. From networking events and training sessions, to company team gatherings, and light sport use, this space has endless possibilities for use.
This space is used extensively during our club hours for challenges, sports, competitions etc., but is also frequently by schools for lessons, and conferences or training by companies during the day.
Free to use WiFi is available throughout our building.
This space is available to book during the day, Monday – Friday at a rate of £15 per hour.
