The next deadline for stage 1 application to the Wolfson Foundation’s Secondary Education Programme is the 10th January 2018.
Through its Secondary Education Programme high-achieving (in receipt of an outstanding Ofsted assessment or regional equivalent) state-funded 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; or projects involving libraries, languages, music or the arts.
