Getting older doesn’t mean you should stop learning. Keep the mind active by getting involved, try new hobbies,find a undiscovered passion, and make new friends. There’s plenty out there in the world of adult learning classes, so why not go out and discover something new.
Just behind Sutton High street is Sutton College, which offers a large choice of adult learning courses in everything from floristry to photography to essential digital skills (because you’re never too old to start)!
There are plenty of part time and evening classes on offer here, as well as virtual learning options for seniors who may live a little further away. Fees vary but there is often help available for the pricier courses, while it won’t be right for every elderly person to revisit their GCSEs or pursue a diploma in something, those who are craving a mental challenge and are keen to return to a classroom environment to keep their grey matter working are bound to find something here that they’ll enjoy.
