We support local and regional state schools in a number of ways:
Our “Books Change Lives” workshops provide children from local state primary schools who are reluctant to read the opportunity and confidence to regain a love of reading and boost literacy levels.
Around 125 Year 5 children from across the region come into School every year for our annual Secondary School Discovery Day to help them adjust to the next stage of their education.
We have introduced over 2,500 children and adults from across the West Midlands to publishers, award winning authors, poets, journalists and writers.
Our annual Festival of Sport attracts Junior Schools to participate in a whole range of beginner sports. Annual Rugby and Cross-Country festivals also provide more experienced young sportsmen and women with a more challenging opportunity.
Music workshops for local schools and community groups.
Our Junior School coaches the next generation of young leaders in partnership with the Severndale Specialist Academy in Shrewsbury.
Instrument loan to choirs and musical groups.
