The Mary Ward Centre is an adult education college which provides part-time day, evening and weekend courses. It has a reputation not only for the quality of its teaching but also for the innovatory nature of its courses and the friendly ambience of the building in which they take place. Over 7,000 students enrol on some 15,000 course places each year in arts, crafts, basic skills and languages, humanities, computers, music, health and personal development. The Centre was founded as a Settlement in 1890 by the novelist Mrs Humphry Ward who had an enduring impact on public education through the pioneering work she initiated. The work of the Centre today is rooted in those early years. It offers still a pathway to personal and community growth through its education programme. The Centre still is - in Mary Ward's words - 'a place for ideals, a place for enthusiasm'.
