How to Use

Using Units

• Use EM for Padding, Margin, Width, Height, Transforms, & Font Sizes

• Use % (optional) for columns inside containers

Scaling

• On tablet and below, change the body font size to PX or higher VW number
• On desktop, the design will scale up seamlessly. It will stop scaling when it reaches the max width of 1440px.

Come in, hang out and have some fun! For anyone who isn’t sure what we are on about, Drop In is essentially our version of a youth club.  Drop In runs every week and is a great way of meeting new friends and finding new passions… and it is totally free! Drop In is your space. Whether you want to chill and chat with your friends, play computer games or do something more active or creative, we aim to provide a space for you to just be you. Drop In takes place in our youth hall which has everything you need.  There are comfy sofas, games, computers, pool, table tennis, air hockey, and sometimes you can even use our recording studio. Our team of youth workers are there to support you, whether you are in the mood for a quiet bit of nail painting or if you want help arranging a massive game of dodgeball! And if it hasn’t been your day, our team are also trained and equipped to talk you through any issues, questions, challenges or worries you might be facing.

We see a future in which young people are change makers, with clear confident voices that are heard above the noise. A future in which any young person from any background can grow and flourish to become their best selves. In that future they exercise both their rights and responsibilities and invest their lives in building strong communities. We walk together with young people as trusted partners who support, guide, inspire and empower them with that future in mind. We are the Mix.

Thrive Logo

Thrive @ The Mix is a team of qualified teachers, youth workers and volunteers.

We believe that young people need to believe in themselves to thrive in life and learning, and that is our starting point. We want to provide young people with the opportunity to get to know who they really are and build on their uniqueness from there. We know that once they start to develop that confidence, they will thrive in becoming the best version of themselves. We focus on leading young people to develop positive thinking, to build resilience, grow perseverance, develop character and pursue excellence.

Within our team, we have curriculum experts, SEN experience and SEMH specialists to support students in all their needs.

We are able to offer a different learning environment from mainstream for those who need it. We have bespoke learning spaces within The Mix, as well as all the facilities on hand that The Mix and local community have to offer. Where we are purposeful in the teaching of character education, you can generate young people who are resilient and will bring hope and leadership to their lives and others.
