School Awards

School awards

Through our School Awards, we offer awards of up to £500 for young people aged 16-18 years in London state schools to plan, cost and carry out challenging non-academic projects of their own design, either in groups or as individuals. We support successful applicants through physical, creative or innovative leadership projects, giving them a chance to stretch themselves outside their own personal comfort zone, developing team and leadership skills, building character and developing skills for later life.


How it works

We partner with schools, giving award(s) worth up to £500 to the strongest applications per school. Our funding covers the expenses of the challenge we select. A school may be given more than one award.

Generally the process involves us visiting the school and presenting at assembly to 16-18 year olds, inviting applications from them. We then return for a short session to help applicants frame their ideas and answer any questions. Finally, the applications are judged on an agreed date. The award is carried out within an agreed time frame, and certificates are presented on completion. Often the Award winners will give a presentation to the school about their experience.

How to apply

Applications for school awards are made through our partner schools. A full list of our partner school is available below. If you would like your school to be involved please contact us.
