Secondary Minor Awards - Summer 2023 (Details)

Here's a quick summary of what secondary schools in Hertfordshire have successfully bid for so far in the spring term of 2023.   Each academic year, schools can bid for up to £1000 in each of our focus areas (PE, STEM and Learning to Learn) 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".
