Knowledge Is Power

Knowledge Is Power





The Knowledge is Power programme is a parallel curriculum of events and workshops to discuss some of the major issues facing society and young people today. It is a place for students to share experiences of the world, to make greater sense of those experiences, and to build Knowledge and Power upon them.







We confront the climate crisis, health inequalities, housing issues, policing, schooling, and street names. We explore how social media, youth violence, state violence and more, shape our lives and learning. We explore hidden histories, ancient fables, and untold truths.







We draw on community expertise, youth initiative, local heritage, and the latest scholarship from universities across the country and beyond to develop the Knowledge and Power to survive and thrive growing up in London.















































Knowledge Is Power would like to thank all of our invited guest speakers and organisations for their contribution to our programme. Empowering our young learners to share their experiences of the world, to make greater sense of those experiences, and to build Knowledge and Power upon them.
