Senior Zone is the best place to hang out if you've left Primary school and are aged 11-19 (up to 25 with additional needs)!

Fundamentally, Senior members use the Youth Zone as an opportunity to relax, unwind and chill with their mates. 

The Youth Zone plays host to an unbeatable mix of sports such as boxing or climbing. A huge Arts programme that includes performing arts, dance, music and art studio! Plus so many other activities from a learning kitchen to a hair salon and everything in-between!

With over 20 activities every session, you’re guaranteed to be able to try new things, find your passion, and meet some incredible people in the process.

Welcome to Senior Zone at Inspire! Senior Zone is whatever you want it to be, discover what you like or who you are, meet new friends and take up opportunities! Give us a go and come and see for yourselves!
