Learning disability organisation, St. John’s School and College in Seaford, will be officially opening its latest facility, The Hive, to the public next Monday, the 8th of February.

The Hive is an affordable, versatile, state-of-the-art meeting and training space located at St. John’s school on Firle Road in Seaford. Born out of the frustration of not being able to find affordable, flexible and practical spaces to hold employee training sessions and larger meetings, St. John’s created The Hive within the expansive grounds of the picturesque school campus.

Whether you are a small business, local charity or school The Hive is designed to provide an affordable solution for training events, business days and meetings.

The newly-furnished area features two main spaces: The Meeting Room, which seats up to 12 and The Training Room, which seats up to 60. Both areas have access to audio-visual facilities, free WiFi and writing materials. Each room is designed to be training and meeting efficient, boasting plenty of natural light, air conditioning and ergonomically designed furniture.

With catering options available, free parking, plenty of outdoor space and access to a fully-stocked kitchen/break area, the new facility is designed for organisations to have everything they need to productively train or meet in style and comfort.
Monday’s grand opening will be a chance for St. John’s staff, supporters and contacts to tour the site and celebrate this new, publically accessible facility.

Liz Dollin, Head of HR, SD & Admin at St. John’s explains, “The Hive is an incredible new facility that captures the ethos of our work with young people with learning disabilities. It is a fantastic space that we hope other organisations will be interested in and access. We’re very proud and can’t wait for others to start using it.”

The Hive can be accessed from as little as £10 per hour by contacting or 01273 872943.
