The School Alliance is a club brought to you by Games Workshop aimed at introducing young people to the world of games.

This hobby can offer benefits to kids of all ages in a number of different areas: helping them with their language and reading skills (both oral and written), mathematics, statistics and risk analysis, as well as improving their social skills. The hobby also taps into a young person's creativity through arts and crafts, and offers a lot of material to encourage their creative writing abilities. 

This is more than just allowing young people to play games, it's about creating a community where they can form bonds and friendships with like-minded people from all over the world. As this is a global community, they will always find a warm welcome in any of Game Workshop’s 400 stores found the UK, USA, Canada, Australia, Japan, China, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong and more.
