Foyle Foundation Schools Library Programme (UK)

State funded schools as well as dedicated schools that do not have or want to improve their libraries can apply for funding through the Foyle Foundation Schools Library Programme.  Priority will be given to primary schools and to funding library books.  The Foundation will also consider contributions towards e-readers, library software, necessary IT equipment and specialist seating/desks.

Preference will be given to schools which can clearly demonstrate that their library can be maintained and renewed in the future. The average grant made under this programme is between £3,000 and £10,000.  Applications will be strengthened if the PTA/Friends group can support the project.

Past projects funded by the Foundation include:

  • Milton School, Mexborough which received £20,000 towards improving and extending the learning facilities.
  • Forest Fields Primary and Nursery School, Nottingham which received £10,000 towards a literacy project across a partnership of 13 primary schools in Nottingham to engage reluctant boy readers in year 3.

Applications can be submitted at any time.
