Dear GIFTers,

Lots of you are asking when we'll hold our next GIFT residential - believe us when we tell you we are working on it!!


In the meantime, we're asking you to book your GIFT classes over at our other website (Philosophy for Home Education). This is where we run daytime courses for home ed students.

All your usual Wranglers sessions and Taster classes are now listed over there to make it more straightforward for us to manage the admin side of things. We have extra features on p4he, such as an account page where you can see all your bookings, dates and times of your upcoming classes, in one place.

We know you miss seeing each other. We are especially thinking of the uncertainty faced by our exam year students, and those "graduated" GIFTers who have had such a disrupted first experience of being at university.

We are really looking forward to new "real life" beginnings and maybe a new "real life" venue - we'll keep you posted.

GIFT has been supporting the brightest and most curious young minds for 40 years.


*Because of the uncertainty around coronavirus and its impact on bookings, we have postponed our Easter and Summer Schools. Our online Philosophy Wranglers seminars continue, and we will be exploring ways to deliver courses online in the coming weeks.*


We run residential weekends, workshop days and Easter and Summer Schools for secondary age children. These are relaxed, informal opportunities to explore unusual subjects in depth, meet like-minded peers and form lasting friendships.


People often comment that it's nice to be somewhere that they can enjoy learning about unusual things without being judged or the pressure of exams.


We also provide day workshops, advice and training for schools and home educators working with all age groups.

Bursaries are often available to support students who would otherwise be unable to attend.
