Raising Explorers operates its services over two key sites. The Raising Explorers main site is at the Carlisle Business Centre, and our second site is based at Westbourne Primary School.  

Raising Explorers provides children with the best equipment, facilities and resources that we can in order to enhance their learning and enjoy their time at the centre. Being part of Priestley Academy Trust has allowed us at Raising Explorers to further increase capacity and improve our range of facilities and services that we provide for our children. All our rooms are multipurpose use rooms, allowing us to switch from teaching to fun activities with ease.
