About the Green House
The Green House is a learning community for home educated children aged 5 - 16. It runs 9:30 - 3:30 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from its site in Bitton, South Gloucestershire. Read imore in the ‘For Parents’ section if you are interested in your child joining the Green House.
We are based at Meadows Yard livery in Bitton, South Gloucestershire. Our beautiful rural site has plenty of open space to play and includes access to woods and a stream. We have a dome, two large static caravans and a converted stable block for our use.
To allow us to grow and to give a more permanent base, we are planning to move sites in August 2024. We intend to be no more than 20 minutes from the current location. You can see more details about our search for a new site here
Relationships and people are at the core of our community. Our Holding team are three amazing humans who are responsible for logistical running of the community, as well as maintaining and developing our vision and direction. Our three fabulous facilitators passionately support the young people on their learning journeys on the ground three days per week. Our holding team and facilitators co-create a safe and nurturing space, prioritising care and emotional support. This enables healthy relationships and honest communication throughout the community.

We are part of a growing network of educational change-makers.
