Carlisle Youth Zone was the first of OnSide’s Network of Youth Zones to open in July 2011. A three-storey building, located on the site of the Richard Rose Central Academy, it is part of the city’s ‘learning village’. Departing from the regular OnSide ‘Model’, the Youth Zone makes use of the Academy’s sports facilities during evenings, weekends and holidays.
Co-location of the Youth Zone with the centrally-sited academy raises a huge number of exciting opportunities for joint working to raise young people’s aspirations and improve achievement.
