The next deadline for stage 1 application to the Wolfson Foundation’s Secondary Education Programme is the 10th January 2017.
Through its Secondary Education Programme high-achieving state-funded and independent schools and sixth form colleges can apply to the Foundation for funding for capital or equipment projects relating to the teaching of science and technology, languages, music, the arts or libraries. Grants do not normally exceed £50,000 for schools or £100,000 for sixth form colleges. Projects should focus on students taking A-Level or GCSE examinations. Schools and Colleges applying to our January Stage 1 deadline will, if successful, be invited to submit their Stage 2 application by 15 February and will be considered by the Schools Panel in May and the Trustees in June.
Examples of schools that have received funding through the Foundation include:
Cheadle Hulme High School, Cheshire, which received a grant of £46,000 for A Level science equipment.
Arthur Mellows Village College, Peterborough, received a grant of £40,000 for the refurbishment of two science IT classrooms.
