School Grants Guide

Using this Guide

As the new national funding formula is unveiled by Justine Greening and schools in England face having to find £3bn of savings by 2019-20 (National Audit Office), the subject of funding in education remains front of mind.

Schools are under pressure to deliver an outstanding educational provision for students in an increasingly tough financial environment.

Additional pots of money are available in the form of grants from trusts and foundations, as well as specific government departments. Navigating the mass of information and differing criteria and application processes can often mean that eligible schools are not receiving money that they could be entitled to.

This guide is aimed at Headteachers, School Business Managers, Finance Managers, Bursars, Parents, Governors and anyone else who has an interest in fundraising for schools.

There are many grants available in the UK which may be relevant to your school. This guide provides details of some of the main grants and summarises the key details in an easy to review way.

Each grant included is split in to the following sections, to help you decide if it is of interest before you access the grant website via the links provided.

  • Funding Range
  • Eligible Organisations
  • Suitable Projects
  • Application Process
  • Important Dates

Good luck with your applications!
