Welcome to the website for the Todmorden Learning Centre and Community Hub (TLCCH). TLCCH is a unique project combining a community hub with a school for sustainability skills for an uncertain future. Natural building, Agroecology and energy matters will be taught alongside creative subjects and community led learning.  It will also be home to some council services including the Children’s Centre.

We are working hard to bring this project into being. We aim to create a knowledgeable, skilled, creative, joyful, and responsible population harnessing change and contributing significantly to a peaceful, secure and equitable world, living in harmony with nature and using technology responsibly.

See our News section for all the latest updates, our  About Us section for details of our constitution and objects, board structure and roles, board members, membership process and first business plan.


We’ve agreed in principle with Calderdale Metropolitan Borough Council to undertake the asset transfer of Todmorden Community College to Todmorden Learning Centre (TLC) and Community Hub. So we’re meeting with Council representatives to agree on the lease arrangements.

We are currently working on a “joint heads of terms agreement”.  This will determine the date of transfer and the date at which TLC will be up and running – our target is April 2021. We’ll keep everybody up to date on the expected opening date.

In the meantime, Todmorden Community College is open for those services that can run under the current Covid restrictions and will continue to deliver its existing services both now, and into the future as part of TLC.
