About organisation: The Literacy Pirates is an educational charity working to develop the literacy, confidence and perseverance of young people in London, so that they achieve both in school and in the world beyond. We know that young people sometimes need some extra help to achieve their full potential, and we believe that providing support outside of school can really help young people to do better in the classroom, while also developing their broader skills. We also believe that learning should be a great adventure! So working together with local schools, families and volunteers, we deliver unique real-world learning projects (such as published books, films, and apps) in our online learning environment.
