Our History

  • The Bloomfield's Origins

    The Bloomfield Learning Centre has been helping children with dyslexia since 1973.

    Originally part of a multi-disciplinary team in the Bloomfield clinic of Child Psychology and Psychiatry at Guy’s Hospital, funding was withdrawn in 1991, however, with the support of John Bloomfield and Guy’s Trust, the Centre defied the odds and kept its doors open to children who had nowhere else to go for specialist literacy teaching.

  • Becoming a charity

    The Centre gained charitable status in 1993 and has continued to provide specialist literacy services ever since.
    Since becoming a charity in 1993, we have assessed more than 2,000 children and taught 3,000 to read. We are proud to claim many successful Londoners amongst our alumni, teachers, journalists, computer scientists and engineers.
