The bus was kindly donated by the Ragged School Trust in Cambridge to enable family learning opportunities on site at the Playground. The Learning Bus means we now have a facility to promote children, young people, adult and family learning.

Who is it for?

The Learning Bus is available for use by local services (education, cultural, guidance, advisory and youth and community) to host outreach sessions to benefit members of the local community.

Resources and Facilities

The Learning Bus is equipped with:

  • Desks and chairs to accommodate up to 26 people
  • Electric and plug sockets
  • A projector and smart board screen for interactive use
  • A hydraulic lift for wheelchair users
  • Air conditioning
  • Heating
  • First Aid kit

See more photographs of the Learning Bus here, including some of our young helpers who joined in the cleaning and preparation!


The Bus is free for use by local organisations, although a fee will be incurred if the participants are charged.


Please provide your own refreshments. Crockery is provided. There is access to running water.


Please complete the booking form here. Alternatively, you can email to request a booking form.

The management reserves the right to refuse use by organisations whose aims are not in line with the ethos and values of the Playground.
