Secondary Awards Available and Deadlines

Apply online using the Secondary Minor or Major Award Application Form links below (left)

PLEASE NOTE: At present, we can only consider applications from Hertfordshire state-funded secondary schools.

Each academic year we intend to award the following grants to Hertfordshire secondary schools:

Secondary Minor Awards

  • Secondary schools may only receive 1 Minor Award in each focus area per academic year (i.e. a maximum of 3 Minor Awards per year, 1 in each focus area).   If a Minor Award application is unsuccessful, schools may apply for something else in the same focus area.
  • Our focus areas for secondary schools are:  PE, STEM and Learning to Learn.
  • Approximately  £20,000 will be spread over each academic year and awarded across all three focus areas.
    • The maximum bid for any minor award is £1000.
    • Minor Awards can be applied for at any time until each term's pot runs out.  The pot is then refilled at the beginning of the next term and applications reopen.  
    • A running total of the remaining award fund for the current term will be shown above the application form.
  • Please see our How to Apply for a Grant page for important information on Part-bids and Bids to avoid.

A brilliant scheme that has enabled us to purchase those 'dream' pieces of equipment that we wish we could buy but cannot justify within our own ever diminishing budgets!

 Other Help for Schools

As we grow, we will also aim to help schools in other ways e.g.:

  • building an easy-to-use database of other organisations that support our objectives and focus areas.*
  • recruiting organisations and businesses to supply expert visitors to schools and facilitate pupil and teacher visits/placements.  Schools will then have access to these contacts.
  • Negotiating discounts from suppliers of educational services that fit our focus areas.

*As always, we don’t specifically endorse any organisation on our links pages but offer the information for teachers to evaluate the resources for themselves.
