Capricorn Club is a BBC schools radio series from the 1980s, for teachers.

A "magazine of the air" programme for teachers and others working with children with learning disabilities and Special Educational Needs.

The series began as a 15 minute broadcast in ((Term|Summer 1980}} to share expertise, practice and ideas, along with stories and songs which could be used with pupils.

In Summer 1981 the programmes were expanded to 20 minutes, and linked directly with the new TV series Capricorn Game including a reading based on the serial story about a magician and a lost umbrella from the TV series.
