As part of the Trust-wide enrichment offer and within individual academies, we develop programmes and work in collaboration with a range of partners and external organisations such as; UKSA, Royal Society of Arts, FIRST Tech Challenge, The Brilliant Club, NCS, DofE, Into Film, Shakespeare Schools Festival, Centre for Young Musicians and Debate Mate.
We are fortunate to receive support for some of our enrichment activities, from Ormiston Trust, but we recognise the importance of developing partnerships and funding streams with other providers. To-date we have received additional programme support and funding from a range of regional and national funding bodies, such as: The National Lottery Community Fund (formerly Big Lottery), Arts Council England, The National Lottery Heritage Fund, Awards for All, Zurich Municipal, Foyle Foundation, Edge Foundation, Greggs Foundation, Dame Kelly Holmes Trust, Sport England, Football Association, NCOP, The Wildlife Trusts.
We thank them all for their continued support.
As a Trust, we will continue to explore and develop sustainable partnerships with organisations who have a remit to support disadvantaged young people. The partnership programmes we develop must evidence positive impact, consider sustainable practice and legacy and be of mutual benefit to all partners involved.
