To be eligible, schools must have either a high proportion of pupils from ethnic minority backgrounds (over 30%); have a high proportion of pupils eligible for pupil premium; and/or be a small school in a remote and rural location.

The closing date for applications is 12 noon on the 13th November 2017.
