Work we've funded

London Schools Network
 
This year has been the tenth and final year of support for our London Schools Network, with 21 new projects funded across five secondary and 16 primary schools. The year’s primary school projects included a digital composition project to enable six and seven year olds to write their own poems and set them to music, an initiative to boost children’s progress in maths by incorporating more outdoor learning, and the launch of a school radio station. The secondary schools have continued to build on previous work to develop students’ social and cultural capital, particularly to help students move on to higher education.
