Welcome to Sutton Life Centre

Sutton Life Centre is a unique, state of the art educational and community facility in South London promoting good citizenship, personal safety and the environment. We have a range of facilities all under one roof, including a modern public library, outdoor climbing wall, multipurpose sports pitch, meeting room facilities, media lab, eco-garden and our award winning Life Skills Zone for school visits aimed at Year 5/6 and 7/8 pupils. We are also a member of the Safety Centre Alliance (SCA) – a collection of Safety Centres located across the UK which work together to share knowledge and best practice.

Sutton Life Centre is owned and managed by the London Borough of Sutton.

An Educational Experience Like No Other…

“The Life Centre’s use of technology allows it to address difficult topics effectively. Domestic violence and sexual bullying are handled well and will provide very useful information to help young people cope and find the support they need.”
Sue Minto, Head of ChildLine

Sutton Life Centre acts in part as a local community hub and library, but also as a regional educational facility. Our Life Skills Zone teaches pupils in primary (Year 5 and 6) and secondary (Year 7 and 8) about safety, citizenship and the environment using the latest cinematic technology. Part movie set, part learning experience; the Life Skills Zone truly is the world’s first super classroom.

For further information about the Life Skills Zone and organising a visit for your school, please see our School Trips page.
