Secondary Minor Awards: Spring 2022

Here's a quick summary of what secondary schools in Hertfordshire have successfully bid for so far in the spring 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 in the budget.  This budget is displayed on the applications page and it is "topped-up" at the start of each term (as funding allows).  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".
