  • Establishing sustainable partnerships between schools in the UK and over 30 countries in the Middle East, Sub Saharan Africa and South and East Asia
  • Equipping young people with the knowledge and skills to live and work in a globalised economy.


Details on how to apply will be online soon.


British Ecological Society Outreach Grants

Individuals and organisations such as schools, museums, libraries and community groups can apply for grants of up to £2,000 to promote ecological science to a wide audience.  The funding is available for projects that increase public understanding of, and engagement with ecology.  Applications from museums and schools are welcome but projects must involve significant outreach beyond schools.  Projects aimed solely at delivering curriculum to school children will not be considered.


Deadline 5pm on 11 September 2015


Society for the Promotion of Roman Studies

The Society makes grants to schools to help promote Latin and Roman studies.  Most of the grants are awarded for the purchase of textbooks and other books on Roman topics.  The Committee also makes awards to groups and schools organising lectures or study days on Roman themes, and has recently made money available for archaeology fieldwork bursaries.  Applications from schools planning to start courses in Latin are particularly welcome.


Grants usually range from £50 to £500.


Deadline 1 November 2015


Polli:Nation Programme for Schools

The Polli:Nation programme has been developed by the school grounds charity, ‘Learning through Landscapes’, to support schools in helping to protect the future of the UK's seriously dwindling bee population.  All schools in the UK can apply for funding of up to £4,000 to enable teachers, children and volunteers to be trained to make the necessary changes to their school grounds to create habitats.  Biodiversity and landscape experts will also help you to develop pollinator friendly areas and other initiatives that will create bee and other insect-friendly environments.


Deadline 31 October 2015
