Welcome to Sutton Life Centre

Sutton Life Centre is a unique, state of the art educational and community facility in South London promoting good citizenship, personal safety and the environment. We have a range of facilities all under one roof, including a modern public library, outdoor climbing wall, multipurpose sports pitch, meeting room facilities, media lab, eco-garden and our award winning Life Skills Zone for school visits aimed at Year 5/6 and 7/8 pupils.

Sutton Life Centre is owned and managed by the London Borough of Sutton.


An Educational Experience Like No Other…

Sutton Life Centre acts in part as a local community hub and library, but also as a regional educational facility. Our Life Skills Zone teaches pupils in primary (Year 5 and 6) and secondary (Year 7 and 8) about safety, citizenship and the environment using the latest cinematic technology. Part movie set, part learning experience; the Life Skills Zone truly is the world’s first super classroom.

For further information about the Life Skills Zone and organising a visit for your school, please see our School Trips page.
