The Community Learning and Information Centre (CLIC) is housed within Barons Court Primary School and offers a large range of family learning opportunities to our school community. The CLIC works in partnership with Southend Adult Community College (SACC) to provide courses and projects for our families. When adults sign up for a course, places are allocated on a first come, first served basis - please check out the wide variety of workshops we are running this academic year.
