Secondary Minor Awards - Autumn 2022 (Details)

Here's a quick summary of what secondary schools in Hertfordshire have successfully bid for so far in the autumn term of 2022.   Each academic year, schools can bid for up to £1000 in each of our focus areas (PE, STEM and Effective Learning) providing there are enough funds left in our termly budget (displayed on the applications page).  Applications have to pass our criteria which you can find here.

We wish all the award recipients good luck with their amazing projects and we are very pleased to have helped them "achieve a lot with a little".
