Youth Programme

We provide small, friendly English and Maths classes. Our supportive teachers help you build up your skills and confidence. You decide on your learning goals, only sitting exams if you choose to.

Alternative Education

We are a registered Alternative Learning Provider for Bristol City Council. We offer English and Maths tuition to people experiencing barriers to their learning.

Adult Learning Courses

Our adult Maths and English groups focus on individual learning needs. We also offer dyslexia support courses to help adults understand their dyslexia.

Our Vision

Yes has a vision of a city where everyone has the tools, confidence and self-belief to find and achieve their goals and take an active role in their communities.

To achieve this vision we will provide opportunities for young people and adults to develop their skills and make progress towards their personal learning goals.

Thank you ever so much for all your work with our son- this was the first positive experience he has had of classroom-based learning, and it has really set him up for success at college. We are both extremely grateful!

I wanted to personally say thanks for all the hard work you have put in so far for the English course. I really do appreciate the support and help you have provided me with.
